The attack[edit]

On Wednesday, May 18, 2001 at 11:30 am, a Palestinian suicide bomber wearing a long blue jacket with hidden explosives attached to his body, approached the popular HaSharon Mall mall in the center of Netanya. The suspicious looking militant was approached by the mall's security guard whom soon thereafter attempted to prevent the suicide bomber from entering the mall. As a result, the militant immediately blew himself up at the entrance to the mall. The blast killed five people and injured more than 100.

Fatalities[edit]

Aftermath[edit]

Following the attack Israeli fighter jets attacked Palestinian security forces headquarters in the West Bank.
