TEL AVIV, November 21 (Itar-Tass) – Number of people wounded in Wednesday afternoon’s explosion of a bomb on a bus in Tel Aviv has risen to 22, an official at the Ichilov hospital said.
Most of the wounded were delivered from the site of explosion to Ichilov.
One of the wounded was in a heavy condition at the time of reporting, while another four persons were in a medium-heavy condition and the rest had light injuries or were suffering from a nervous shock or contusions.
The police and secret services sealed off the site of the incident and launched a search for a possible terrorist and his or her accomplices. Israeli TV said people were being evacuated from the Azrieli Cente Skyscraper, which is broadly viewed as Tel Aviv’s calling card.
Instructions were issued to the residents of apartment blocks and workers of the offices located nearby to stay inside buildings.
The bus exploded on Shaul HeMelech Street near the entrance of the city in the vicinity of the Diamond Exchange in Ramat-Gan. Located on the same street are conventional apartment blocks and offices and the Center of Performing Arts.
Located in a district nearby are the General Staff of the Armed Forces and the Ministry of Defense.
At the time of the explosion, the regular scheduled bus from Bnei Brak to Ramat Gan to Tel Aviv was passing the area at a big enough distance away from the compound.
