Hamas says it was behind suicide blast in Israel

The Palestinian Islamist movement Hamas yesterday signalled a return to suicide bombing for the first time in more than three years inside Israel when it claimed responsibility for an attack in the town of Dimona on Monday.

Hamas named the two bombers as militants from Hebron, in the occupied West Bank. Abu Obeida, a recognised Hamas spokesman in Gaza, said the attack was intended to "bring a nightmare" to Dimona. The blast on Monday killed an Israeli woman and injured 11 others, including her husband.
