The search for the terrorists who perpetrated the deadly bombings in Jerusalem on Wednesday morning continues but meanwhile, the Jerusalem Magistrate’s Court approved a police request to place a gag order on further details of the investigation on the attacks.
However, prior to the gag order, several more details were published about the attack. Israeli security officials believe that the terrorists were residents of east Jerusalem. Additionally, it was publicized that a gas canister that was attached to the explosive device at Tzomet Ramot failed to explode.
If the gas canister would have exploded together with the bomb, it would have set off a significantly more powerful explosion that could have caused severe injuries and/or deaths to the people on the bus that had pulled away from the bus stop seconds before the explosion, as well as nearby passersby.
