19:25 IST: Death toll rises to 17 in double Palestinian suicide bombing Sunday night on two crowded street corners near old Central Bus Terminal in South Tel Aviv.

Seven of at least 50 injured in very serious condition. Jihad Islami`s Damascus HQ takes responsibility for dual terror attacks, the first of 2003.

Extra-large bombs contained ball bearings and sharp metal fragments, making injuries more severe.

Israeli political sources note: Jihad Islami-Damascus is represented at Egyptian-sponsored Palestinian conference in Cairo - supposedly to discuss cessation of terror. Arafat held ultimately responsible as he gives green light to terrorist activity.
