Beachside blast in Eilat

And so the nastiness recommences.
In Eilat, a suicide bomber killed himself and three bakery customers at a little bun shop this morning and wounded several more. This is the first such blast in this upscale Red Sea diving resort. Three different terror groups initially claimed credit for the bombing, the first in nine months, and included Islamic Jihad and Fatah's Al-Aksa Martyr brigade and the previously unknown Islamic Brigade ( Sources: JPost and YNET). Palestinian press reports later said Mohammed Faisel Al-SakSak, a 21 year old Gazan bomber who sneaked in via Jordan, had planned the attack seven months ago, at the height of the IDF assault on Gaza.
