A bus carrying mostly Israeli youth in a Bulgaria exploded near an airport Wednesday, killing 7 people and wounding at least 30 others. Bulgaria is a popular family vacation destination for Israelis so the attack caught many families just as they arrived for their vacation. Two pregnant women and an 11-year-old Israeli girl are among the wounded. Bulgarian interior minister says bus blast was a deliberate attack.
Iran's signature is all over this terror attack. Just last week a Hezbollah man was caught snooping around Israeli flights and tourist buses in Cyprus. While last week attack was foiled sadly this one was not.
Pointing a finger at Iran, Prime Minister Netanyahu said -"The murderous Iranian terror continues to target innocent people. Iranian terror is spreading worldwide...Israel will react to it with force,"
