The shooting attack carried out by a Palestinian assailant at the Beersheba central bus station on Sunday was "possibly" planned and prepared by more than one person, a senior defense official said.

In an interview with Army Radio, Maj. Gen. (res.) Amos Gilad, who holds the title of head of the diplomatic-security branch in the Defense Ministry, said that the details of the investigation will be revealed in due time.

"This kind of attack certainly needs to be dealt with so that it doesn't happen again," Gilad said.
