One passenger explained what happened. (SOUNDBITE) (Arabic) FACTORY WORKER AND PASSENGER ON BUS, HANY AYESH ISMAIL, SAYING: "We were driving along when suddenly we felt an explosion. By the time we understood what was happening and got off the bus, we saw a military vehicle driving past us but did nothing to help. We started looking for each other and found around two or three dead bodies inside the bus. We then realized that we were hit by a rocket and some of us were injured, some dead, and 10 minutes later the ambulance arrived."
