Israel: November 7, 1999



Three bombs went off simultaneously in the Israeli town of Netanya. No one was killed, but 34 were injured. Another bomb was found and defused. The Islamic Jihad later took credit for the action. Terrorism was expected by hard line Palestinian groups like Hamas and Islamic Jihad as Israeli and Palestinian leaders meet to work out more details of Palestinian independence.
