Yeah.. and this is the nail in the coffin:
Al-Qassam - Press Conference about the aggression on Gaza 9-4-2011
Press Conference about the aggression on Gaza
Our Palestinian people... Our Arab and Islamic Nations...
Zionist entity continue its war crimes against Palestinian civilians, during the month of March and April, the current escalation of aggression increased seriously, targeting civilians and resistance men, taking advantage of international silence.
In March, Zionist entity committed a massacre against the children of Al Hilu Family, east of Ash-Shijaia neighborhood, then committed the crime of assassinating Al Qassam leaders Ismail and Abdullah Lubbad and Mohamed Ad-Daya, the Zionist entity also targeted ambulance crews, press, mosques.
The Zionist entity assassinated a mother and daughter from Qideh family - She was going to married soon- from the east of Khanyounis city.
Al-Qassam Brigades did not stand idly, and we have responded to this barbaric aggression that led to the death of nearly fifty Palestinian civilians since the beginning of this year, especially in recent weeks, the majority of the deaths are innocents.
Al-Qassam Brigades' operations during the last Forty-Eight hours:
First: Targeting a bus was traveling between the Zionist military sites on the strip border, east of Gaza City, at around three o'clock on Thursday, 07.04.2011, near the so-called "Kfar Saad," the bus was passing in the way of tanks and artillery.
Second: Al-Qassam Brigades within forty-eight hours pounded the Zionist military sites adjacent to the Gaza Strip with 68 rockets and mortars (28 rockets and 40 mortar shells).
Al-Qassam Brigades emphasize the following:
First: The Zionist enemy is responsible for these crimes and escalation in the Gaza Strip, the Zionist arrogance and aggression will not deter us from doing our duty to respond to aggression.
Second: There is no opportunity to talk about calm between us and the occupation at a time Zionist entity bombs our people and committing massacres, but the blood of our people will not be wasted.
Third: We will continue our revolution and our jihad against the occupiers, rand our entire nation and the free world with us until liberating Palestine.

It was intentional... The bus was targeted.
It goes along with the Arabic press release that stated they viewed the school bus as a military target.
