In a series of complex, coordinated terrorist attacks in southern Israel on Thursday, at least seven people were murdered and dozens were wounded. Seven terrorists were also killed.

The first attack occurred just after noon when men in a car shot at an Egged bus No. 392 that was traveling from Beersheba to Eilat. The bus had been heading south with tourists and soldiers, and its route took it along the Egyptian border.
