Three men and a woman were killed in the suicide bombing, which happened at Geha, on the outskirts of Tel Aviv. At least 12 others were injured in the blast. The attack has been claimed by militant group the Popular Front for Liberation of Palestine (PFLP).

The suicide bombing came a day after a Palestinian man with explosives strapped to his body was shot and killed by Israeli soldiers as he approached the Ganei Tal settlement in the southern Gaza Strip. His death brought to 3,669 – 2,747 Palestinians and 856 Israelis – the number of people killed since the start of the intifada.
