(Newser) – Israel's army spokeswoman says an Israeli Arab who is a member of Hamas has been arrested for yesterday's bus bombing in Tel Aviv. The bombing injured 27 people near Israel's military headquarters and threatened to scuttle efforts to broker a ceasefire to end fighting between Israel and Gaza. An Israeli military spokeswoman reported today on Twitter that authorities had arrested the man who planted the bomb on the bus and identified him as an Arab Israeli Hamas member from the village of Taybeh.
