At least seven people have been killed and more than 30 others injured in an explosion on a bus carrying Israeli tourists in the eastern Bulgarian city of Burgas.
According to this RT report, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has accused Tehran for the bombing in just two hours after the incident, saying that “all signs point to Iran” and he has promised in a statement today that “there would be an Israeli response”, probably meaning war or a terrorist incident involving Iranians.
Most of the media is also claiming that the incident has not been reported in Iran and an Iranian reaction to the Israeli accusation has not yet been reported, using this as a “proof” that Iran is guilty.
The Daily Mail has also confirmed that Israel has blamed Iran for the attack.
A US, Michigan driver’s license was found on the suicide bomber in the Bulgaria bus bombing that killed the Israeli tourists. It is alleged that the driver’s license may be fake. So far the identity of the man remains unknown.
The Bulgarian media have reportedly identified the man responsible for blowing up the bus with Israeli tourists on Wednesday as Mehdi Ghezali, a Swedish jihadist, with Algerian and Finnish origins who spent two years in Guantanamo Bay. US officials responded there is “no evidence” that it was him.
The explosion occurred on Wednesday at Burgas International Airport on the Bulgarian Black Sea Coast, about 400 kilometers (250 miles) east of the Bulgarian capital Sofia, the Israeli daily Haaretz reported.
“There are six bodies on the scene — one critically wounded died at the hospital and two seriously injured are in intensive care. Thirty more people are being treated,” the Israeli Foreign Ministry announced in a statement.
The death toll is expected to rise as more than 40 other people were reportedly on the bus when the incident took place, Bulgarian officials said.
The explosion also damaged two nearby buses.
According to Israeli officials, the explosion took place as the Israeli tourists from a Tel Aviv-Burgas flight were boarding the bus to go to their hotels.
No group has claimed responsibility for the blast so far and the cause of the incident is still under investigation.
“We don’t know if it was a terror attack. We do know it was an explosion,” said Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesman Paul Hirschson.
