West Bank Bus Shelter Blown Up in Attempted Terror Attack

A bus shelter in the northern West Bank was blown up with explosives in what police believe was an attempted terrorist attack.

Sunday morning’s explosion occurred at a bus stop located outside of the settlement of Rechalim, near the Tappuach Junction south of Nablus.

An Israeli man was shot and seriously injured by a Palestinian terrorist at the same bus shelter in late July.

Also on Sunday, firebombs were thrown at cars with Israeli license plates at the Jit junction outside of Nablus and near the West Bank settlement of Kedumim.
