A suicide bomber dressed in an Israeli Army uniform detonated a powerful bomb in an open-air market in this coastal city Sunday, killing three Israelis and wounding at least 56 people, the Netanya police chief said.
Eleven of the wounded in the terror attack had severe injuries, Israeli medical sources said. At least two of the casualties died in the hospital from their wounds.
The blast was reported about 4:15 p.m. local time (9:15 a.m. ET).
"I heard a huge boom and saw body parts flying," witness Eli Maimon, told Army Radio, according to Reuters. "He [the bomber] came in an army uniform."
