Tel Aviv police had added additional officers in the city before the bus bomb attack in Tel Aviv Wednesdasy, due to heightened state of alert in place because of the IDF operation in Gaza and rocket attacks, Tel Aviv police chief Yoel Ohayon said at the scene.
Police called on the public to stay alert, the Tel Aviv chief said.
While it appeared the bomb was left on the bus and not the result of a suicide bombing, Ohayon said that at this point in time "it is very difficult to say exactly what happened."
