So now I know what to give a Palistinian dad for father's day! NABLUS, West Bank (Reuters) - The militant Islamic Hamas group claimed responsibility for a suicide bombing on a Jerusalem bus Tuesday, the bomber's father said. Hazaa al-Ghoul told Reuters he received a telephone call from a Hamas official to inform him that his son, Mohammed al-Ghoul, carried out the attack. The bomber killed 19 people on the bus crowded with schoolchildren and office workers. Mohammed al-Ghoul was a student of Islamic studies at al-Najah University in the West Bank city of Nablus. He had apparently disappeared about three days ago. His father told Reuters from his home in the al-Fara refugee camp, near [b]Nablus, that he was "very happy" to hear that his son was the bomber.[/b] Hamas did not issue a written claim of responsibility for the bombing, the latest in a string of suicide attacks against Israelis since a Palestinian uprising against Israeli occupation began in September 2000 after peace talks deadlocked.
