Suhaib Ajami, 19, was named over loud speakers in the nearby village of Attil as the suicide bomber responsible for Thursday's attack.

 

Islamic Jihad has helped to spearhead a Palestinian revolt that was launched in the West Bank and Gaza Strip in 2000.

 

It has carried out several attacks during a 9-month-old truce declared by fighter groups.

 

The Israeli army said on Friday it had arrested 10 Palestinians suspected of being linked to the suicide bomber.
