The bomb that exploded in a Tel Aviv bus did not appear to be a large explosive device, head of emergency medicine at Ichilov Hospital said Wednesday, citing the types of injuries as previous terror attacks.

The victims brought to the hospital did not have the same type of shock and shrapnel injuries that were typical of larger terror attacks in the past, Prof. Halperin told The Jerusalem Post.



Of the 21 victims brought to the hospital, the two most seriously wounded are teenagers, Prof. Halperin said, although he noted that none of them had life-threatening injuries.

Of the 21, three remain in surgery and six have already been released. The remainder were lightly wounded.
