Citations for Actions following Tel Aviv Bus Bombing


Certificates of appreciation were presented, Sunday, to security guards and officers, an attorney and an intern at the Tel Aviv office of the Justice Ministry for their fast response to last month's terrorist bombing of a bus just outside the office. The personnel were the first to arrive at the scene and helped overcome the panic, put out the fire on the bus and administered first aid. They also blocked off streets leading to the cite of the attack and relayed information from witnesses to police about the terrorists who fled the scene.

Justice Minister Ya'akov Ne'eman said, "Your dedication is commendable. The sages have said that whoever saves one life from Israel, it is as if he saved the whole world."
