Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu stated that “all signs point to Iran”  and that Israel will respond fiercely.
Shoshi, Israeli who witnessed the blast said :
We passed immigration and got onto bus #4 outside the airport. We placed our bags, and after two minutes bus #2 went up in flames. We were evacuated into a secure room.

Survivors from the bus had to jump out of the bus so as not to step on bodies. We saw the bus, one Israeli took a photo of it. We saw its trunk explode. We were quickly rushed into the terminal.

I just spoke with Bulgaria’s foreign minister, Nikolay Mladenov, about the blast. Mladenov is heading to the location and will give me updates when he gets there.
