NETZARIM JUNCTION, Gaza Strip (AP) _ An explosion went off Friday near the main bus station in the central Israeli town of Hadera, Israeli radio reports said.

The blast, which one paramedic said slightly injured eight people, came hours after a Palestinian truck sped toward an Israeli army post Friday and exploded under Israeli fire. The Islamic militant group Hamas said the truck incident was a suicide attack marking the anniversary of Israel's troop withdrawal from Lebanon.
