Female bomber planned to blow up hospital

Tuesday, June 21, 2005 |    

Israeli security cameras captured dramatic footage of a Palestinian woman strapped with explosives who tried to enter Israel from Gaza. She aroused the suspicion of soldiers at the Erez border crossing, and they demanded that she take off her traditional black robe. Then, they discovered a 10-kilo (22-pound) bomb sown into her leggings. The woman, Wafa al-Bass, had a permit to enter Israel for treatment of severe burns. She told interrogators that she planned to blow up the hospital where she was being treated by Israeli doctors! In Israeli TV interviews, she expressed no remorse for her actions or for targeting the very people who showed her mercy and extended a helping hand.
