One of the buses on display at the Egged Museum showcasing vehicles that have been used by the company for nearly 80 years.

The bus in question is the bus from the coastal road attack, in which terrorists from the Fatah organization who landed in a rubber boat on Maagan Michael beach took over an Egged workers’ bus on its way to Haifa. Later on, they stopped another bus, and even put its passengers on the first bus. In the battles for the release of the bus, the terrorists blew up the bus. In this attack, 35 people were killed and 71 were injured.

The remains of the bus were photographed that day by the same photographer Click for a larger image
