Hamas held a rally today in Gaza where it encouraged more bombings of civilian buses in Israel.
Representatives of the Islamist militant group, which has ruled the territory since 2006, spoke in front of a large bombed-out Israeli bus, which may be a replica rather than a real vehicle.
The journalist and TV producer Khaled Abu Toameh posted photos from the rally to Twitter on Thursday:

Hamas also released a video on YouTube saying that if the Israeli siege of Gaza wasn't ended, there would be another explosion.
A bus in Jerusalem blew up on April 18, injuring over 20 people and killing a 19-year-old named Abdel Hamid Abu Srour, who was likely a suicide bomber. Abu Srour was from the Aida refugee camp near Bethlehem in the West Bank. Hamas later claimed responsibility for the attack.
