The Islamic Jihad claimed responsibility for Monday's suicide bombing in the Netanya mall, identifying the attacker as a resident of a northern West Bank village. In a telephone call, Islamic Jihad said the attacker was Lutfi Amin Abu Salem, from the village of Kafr Rai, located between the towns of Jenin and Tulkarem. Earlier, the Al Aksa Martyrs' Brigades had also claimed responsibility, but did not release the name of a bomber.
