There were also bombs going off in Beer Sheva. Update : no bombs going off..
There's at least 6 dead confirmed so far. 4 points of attack.
This looks like a very coordinated attack... probably coming from terrorists in the Sinai region in Egypt... which the Egyptian army mounted an attack
against in the last few days.
Hopefully this will not be pinned on Hezbollah or some nonsense like that.
