An explosion on a bus transporting Israeli tourists at the airport near the city of Burgas in Bulgaria has reportedly left seven dead, five of whom are apparently Israelis. Bulgarian television said that the dead apparently include a Bulgarian tour guide.
The destination is popular among Israeli youths and most of the casualties are reportedly youths.
The Foreign Ministry has announced that it is sending personnel to the site.
Voice of Israel Radio said that about 30 people are wounded, four of them seriously, quoting Bulgarian TV. It said that a suicide bomber boarded the bus before the explosion occurred, but other reports said the explosion came from the bus's luggage hold.
The plane whose passengers were attacked reportedly landed in Burgas at 4:45 p.m. local time. The flight was chartered for tour company Kavei Hufsha and there were reportedly 165 passengers on the flight.
Israel's Ambassador in Bulgaria is on his way to the Burgas Airport.

When is it payback time?
Bibi has said some strong stuff about this incident. I hope he backs up those words with some action. Iran and MB need to go
No more talk, Bibi. No more talk.
Once again, the No Guns zone only protects terrorists... They knew the Israeli’s would be forbidden from carrying weapons, thus it became a target rich environment.
Time to strike Iran!
Dates when the moon is dark....

Strike when the moon is full! That way they can see hell coming.
You mean, if someone had had a gun, he could have told the suicide bomber, “blow yourself and us up and I’ll shoot!”? You may be right at that, but this incident doesn’t support the argument.

“Lebanon-based printer at center of Burgas probe”

SNIPPET: “”Investigators have discovered that a Hezbollah operative was the owner of a printer used to produce fake documents that facilitated” the attack, the Jewish Telegraphic Agency reported.”
SNIPPET: “On Feb. 5, Bulgaria’s then-Interior Minister Tsvetan Tsvetanov announced that the identities of three of those involved in the Burgas terror attack were known and that at least two of them are members of Hezbollah. While the real names of the two living suspects have not yet been released, authorities believe that they are now living in Lebanon.
On Feb. 6, Tsvetanov revealed that the three members of the cell flew from Beirut to Warsaw before taking a train to Bulgaria. Although the two living suspects entered Europe on genuine Canadian and Australian passports, in Bulgaria they used forged driver’s licenses that were created by the “same source” in Lebanon, according to Europol.
The Canadian suspect is said to have used a US driver’s license under the name of Ralph William Rico, while the Australian used the alias Brian Jameson. The terrorist who has not been identified, but is believed to have been a relative of the Canadian suspect, had used the alias Jacques Felipe Martin on his fake US driver’s license.”
SNIPPET: “On July 18, 2012, the 18th anniversary of the Buenos Aires AMIA bombing, a bomb exploded as Israeli tourists boarded buses at the airport in Burgas, Bulgaria. Five Israelis and one Bulgarian national were killed in the attack, which wounded dozens.”
SNIPPET: “Despite Iranian allegations, American and Israeli officials were soon fairly certain that the attack had been carried out by Hezbollah with direction from Iran. “Israeli intelligence has evidence of many telephone calls between Lebanon and Burgas in the two months before the bombing ... with the volume intensifying in the three days leading up to it,” the New York Times reported in early August.”
