(IsraelNN.com) An explosion in the commercial center of the southern Negev town of Dimona Monday morning has killed at least one person and wounded at least five, ranging from lightly to moderately wounded, with one person in critical condition. A second bomber, already wearing his bomb-vest was shot dead by a police commander.Clearly there is danger in what happened at least a week ago when many Gazans broke through the border to Egypt.
It is unclear whether reports of three dead include the two terrorists. All the wounded have been transported to Be'er Sheva's Soroka Hospital.
Fatah, the terror group controlled by PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas and funded and assisted by the US and Israel, claimed responsibility for the attack. Islamic Jihad also took "credit."
It is likely that the terrorists crossed into the Sinai from Gaza as the border lay open in recent days and then crossed into Israel over the lengthy and porous Sinai-Israeli border. Israeli intelligence warned that the open border was allowing terrorists from Gaza to prepare such attacks, particularly on Negev towns.
Update: thousands in Gaza celebrated the news of this horror, as seen in the video recording here.
