Israel’s Shin Bet domestic security agency arrested several Palestinians and an Arab Israeli for allegedly blowing up a bus in Tel Aviv.

The Shin Bet revealed that its agents had arrested the suspects, including an Arab Israeli, for the attack last week on a bus, Israeli media reported. The security service did not say how many suspects were arrested.

The Arab-Israeli suspect, a resident of Taibeh near Kfar Saba, placed the explosive device on the bus and notified his commander by phone, who set it off, the Shin Bet said.

My assignment this week was straight-forward and predictable: with hostilities heating up in Israel, with Hamas missiles from Gaza starting to aim at Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, with tens of thousands of reserve soldiers being called into active service, with Israel standing on the brink of war, I was to look into the situation of the thousands of teenage students from the States who are spending their gap year learning in Israeli yeshivot (the boys) and seminaries (the girls).

At press conference in Bangkok, Obama says Hamas responsible for intensification of violence.
