Political History

Two suicide bombers go into the Mahane Yehuda Market in Jerusalem, the city's most crowded outdoor market, killing themselves and 16 others. Another 178 are injured.

The next day, the suicide bombers will be identified as members of Hamas. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu meets with the security cabinet and decides to launch military strikes in response.

Two Mossad agents try to assassinate Hamas chairman Khaled Mashal in Jordan, but they are captured. They will later be exchanged for Sheikh Ahmed Yassin, the founder and "spiritual leader" of Hamas.
