An explosion took place today in Tel Aviv downtown, on the outskirts of the army headquarters, causing several injuries.

Police believe it was an assassination attempt against criminal Nissim Alperon.

A motorcyclist threw a bomb against a car Mazda, in the Jabotinsky Street, causing fire in the vehicle.

The bomb, which had been placed in a car, was triggered apparently by a nearby driver. The vehicle exploded in flames, which also hit an empty passenger bus in the vicinity.

Several people were injured in mild character by the explosion of a car Thursday in Tel Aviv in an act of israeli police and considered that it was of a criminal nature and not a terrorist attack by the work of Palestinian groups.

The people injured by the explosion were dealt with by the emergency services at the scene. Three of them would have been transferred to a hospital.
