  Bombed bus
Hamas sent young men laden with explosives to carry out suicidal attacks on innocent civilians. Sometimes they took the form of a car bomb or explosives wrapped around the body.
They were promised a wonderful afterlife and that their families would be well taken care of. It also caused people like Yigal Amir to come out of the darkness and assassinate Yitzhak Rabin.This series of terrorist attacks also resulted in the Labour-led government to lose the elections shoving most of the country into a difficult three years.
