Four Palestinians Indicted in Terror Attack Near Jerusalem Central Bus Station

Today, October 11, 2011, the IDF indicted four Palestinians, members of the Hamas terror organization, responsible for executing the terror attack near the Jerusalem central bus station on March 23, 2011. A British student was killed in the terror attack and 67 civilians were injured.

The terror attack was executed by a cell of the Hamas military wing working in Hebron. Members of the cell recruited the terrorist who executed the attack, by leaving the explosive device in a bus station after noticing a gathering on the premises, walking away and detonating the device. As a result of the explosion, Mary-Jane Gardner was killed and dozens more were injured.

In addition, the members of the cell planned an additional suicide-bomb attack which was intercepted due to their arrest.
