In al-Tarmiya, on a Tuesday night banquet, there were two suicide bombers who attacked the house of a Sunni Leader and ended up killing 22 people and seriously injuring 15 people. The next day another incident emerged when 9 people were killed and 25 were wounded. Many people have tried to help the harmed people but were either killed or injured while trying to help.
