Security Officials Examining Yeshiva BuildingMarch 6, 2008
Since an explosives belt that, thankfully, did not go off (thus preventing a MUCH worse event, considering there were 80 people in the dining hall at the time) was found, security officials are going through every single room and section of the building and surrounding areas to make sure there aren’t any more explosives anywhere.
It seems that a terrorist attack very similar to this one was averted last week, also at a yeshiva.
Hamas has NOT claimed responsibility for this event. An organization that has already claimed responsibility for previous attacks has claimed responsibility, but there is so much noise in the control room, and I have so much going on (which you wouldn’t know by my typing), that I couldn’t really hear.
By the way, the emergency number in Jerusalem right now is 125523106. I’m not sure how to dial from outside the country since I;m not even sure how to dial from here either.
