"Revenge of the Infants" Bombs Jenin School

"Revenge of the Infants" Bombs Jenin School

GAZA, Palestine, March 9, 2003--- International Press Center

The blast occurred Wednesday noon and about fifteen students were injured, of them three in critical condition, in the blast in the Jaba'a School near the city of Jenin.

An extreme right-wing Jewish group called "Revenge of the Infants" claimed responsibility for a mystery blast that ripped through a Palestinian high school in the Jenin-area West Bank village of Jaba'a Wednesday, injuring at least 15 Palestinian teenagers, three of them seriously.

In a statement to reporters, the group said it had planted the bomb in revenge for the murders of Jewish children by Palestinians.

In the past, the shadowy group had claimed responsibility for terror attacks in which Palestinians were killed on West Bank highways.

One of the students at the school apparently discovered the bomb, which went off when the student came in contact with it.

The city's mayor, Lutfi Abu Oun, said all of the wounded were taken to hospitals in the nearby city of Jenin.

The Palestinian National Authority accuses Israel and its occupation army of the full responsibility for the incident and calls on the international community to help the Palestinian people to get red of the Israeli occupation of our land.
