At least ten people were injured when an explosion hit a bus in central Tel Aviv on Wednesday.

There are no reports of deaths in what a security forces spokesman said was a likely terrorist act, RIA Novosti informs.

Emergency services say five of the wounded in the bus explosion are in a serious or moderate condition.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's spokesman Ofir Gendelman said on his Twitter account that the explosion was caused by a bomb and that it was "terrorist attack", BBC says.

The incident comes as Israel continued its strikes on Gaza, including a key compound of the Hamas government, and militants fired more rockets at Israel.
