Two Palestinian suicide bombers killed one Israeli, two immigrant workers, and themselves on Wednesday in Tel Aviv.

The bombing left more than 40 injured. Many of the wounded were foreign laborers from Nigeria, Thailand and the Philippines replacing Palestinian workers barred from entering since the outbreak of fighting.

Islamic Jihad claimed responsibility.

This bombing came only a day after a bus ambush that left eight settlers dead. Minutes after the suicide bombing, two Palestinians were reported killed in explosions at the al-Amari refugee camp in Ramallah. In Gaza yesterday, Israeli warplanes bombed a metal factory at the Mughazi refugee camp.

Guest:

  • Rami Elhanan, father of Smadar Elhanan, who was killed by a suicide bomber on September 4, 1997. She was 14 years old.
