A suicide bomber blew himself up on Egged bus No. 823 en route from Nazareth to Tel Aviv near Pardess Hanna, not far from an army base, a short while ago.

Three Israelis were killed and six wounded in the terrorist attack.

The bomb was carried by a suicide bomber, who apparently boarded the bus at Umm el-Fahm junction, according to Northern Region police chief Cmdr Ya'acov Borovsky.

The explosion took place in the back of the bus, which had few passengers.

Security forces and ambulances rushed to the scene.

Six victims were taken to Hillel Yaffe Hospital in Hadera, one of them in moderate condition, and the rest lightly wounded.

Palestinian residents of a Jenin-area refugee camp spilled out into the streets to celebrate and fire shots into the air when they heard of the attack, Israel Radio reported.

Meanwhile, Prime Minister Ariel Sharon was informed of the attack as he arrived at Ben-Gurion Airport. He is scheduled to fly to the United States tonight.

Sharon is scheduled to visit New York and Washington and meet with US President George W. Bush.
