7 Israelis die, dozens injured in Bulgaria bus explosion, Iran accused

Smoke rises from Burgas International Airport in Bulgaria after a bus carrying Israeli tourists exploded at the airport on July 18, 2012.

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.

The southeastern European country is a popular tourist destination for Israelis.

    How can Netanyahu openly accuse Iran without proof? Even if it is a suspected terrorist attack, how can Israels Prime Minister that the terrorism was state sponsored by Iran. This could be step 1 on tye road to WW3, if Israel strike Iran, without any proof of Tehran’s involvement here, the consequences for the world at large will be dire as we all know that Russia and China wont stand back and watch their oil supply take a hit, and USA , Israels bodyguard will be sure to step in…why isnt this on http://www.infowars.com?

    This is the first good news I’ve had in a long time. Too bad all of them didn’t die though. That’s a few less VILE and CONTEMPTIBLE ANIMALS in the world.

    If every nation started doing this to the jews they’d have no place to go. They may as well finish that wall and seal themselves in. They are the world’s pariah!

    If Israel attacks Iran as they are intent on doing, and then Iran, China or Russia strikes back against the USA and USA citizens or soldiers die, then Israel and its supporters must be held 100% responsible for those deaths, wherever in the world that they reside.

    Israel is only free to be so overly confident because it knows that it has the USA by the balls and that the USA will be forced to defend them. We will not allow Israel to be so cavalier at the expense of USA lives. They have done nothing for the citizens of the USA, ever, and have only used this country as a laboratory for making money. We will no longer sacrifice ourselves for Jews who give us nothing in return but political oppression in our homeland.

    The kazar zionist clans up to their same-o, same-o dirty tricks again to get an excuse to expand their one world control – just as Benjamin Freedman said about them back in the early 1900’s.
