Suicide Bombing in Eliat!

The names of the casualties in Monday's terror attack in Eilat were cleared for publication by Israel Police.

Eilat residents Michael Ben Sadon, 27, Emil Almaliach, 32, and Israel Samoliya, 26 were killed in the suicide bombing.

Ben Sadon and Almaliach were business partners who owned the bakery in which the bombing took place. Samoliya was an employee of the bakery.

Ben Sadon left behind a wife and an 8-month-old son. Almaliach left behind a wife and two daughters aged two and four. Samoliya’s family lives in Miami and was notified of his death.

The video shows the suicide bomber, dressed in a red shirt, making his way towards the bakery, and a few seconds later activating the explosive device.

At the time of the attack there were only three people in the bakery, and all three were killed.

Police believe the bomber detonated his device earlier than planed for fear that he had been spotted.

Heli Azulay, the manager of a supermarket near the bakery told Ynet, "I arrived at work at 8:30…a short time later there was an explosion, I got a hit from the refrigerator from the impact. I left running and screaming 'The bakery has exploded,' me and Orel from the falafel stand ran the other way."

This terror attack has been bought to you by ... Iran...

The bomber, Mohamed Faisal al-Siksik, 21, from Gaza, blew himself up in a bakery in the Red Sea resort of Eilat Monday, Jan. 29, killing the two proprietors and a third Israeli.

This was the first such attack the holiday paradise has ever experienced. DEBKAfile’s counter-terror sources report that the next wave of suicide attacks is expected to be mounted from Gaza and Sinai by the Palestinian Jihad Islami in conjunction with local al Qaeda cells with funding from Tehran and Damascus.

Although two Palestinian groups – Jihad Islami and Fatah-al Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades claimed the attack, DEBKAfile’s counter-terror sources disclosed it was in fact the first joint operation of the third group, the Army of Believers – an al Qaeda cover name – and Jihad Islami of the new anti-Israel terror offensive.
