The absence of surveillance cameras that could have aided in the investigation of the devastating bombing that left one person dead and 14 others injured on Wednesday morning puzzled police and security personnel in Jerusalem.
Police were also wondering how, in the absence of any prior intelligence, a terror cell managed to create and drop bombs in predetermined locations.
In response, the Jerusalem Municipality stated that all the cameras were operational but that “neither the Ramot nor the entrance to Jerusalem nor other portions of the city has cameras pointed at bus stops.
The municipality installs security cameras in public spaces, including recreation areas and parks, to protect resident safety and at critical intersections to monitor traffic. Bus stations have no cameras pointed at them.
However, a hacking collective from Iran named Moses Staff released a video that appeared to have been captured using a satellite equipment.
Somehow, the Iranian organization displayed a camera trained on the bus stop as the explosion occurred.
The Iranians had hacked into a Shin Bet camera that was introduced at the bus stop; it was later discovered.
