2001 Ben Yehuda Street bombings

On December 1, 2001 two suicide bombers detonated themselves on Ben Yehuda Street, followed by a car bomb set to go off as paramedics arrived.

Eleven people were killed, including many children, and 188 were injured in the terrorist attacks. Hamas claimed responsibility for the attack, stating that it and a similar bombing in Haifa were retaliation for the killing of the senior Hamas militant Mahmud Abu Hanoud. A Hamas spokesman in Gaza stated that these bombings, however, did not assuage its lust for vengeance and that it would carry out further bombings.
