Channel 10’s popular program “WANTED” will air two segments next week…one focusing on the 1982 bombings of Sydney’s Hakoah Club and  the Israeli consulate also in Sydney.



The program will reveal new developments made by the NSW counter terrorism squad and feature a first-ever interview with a victim of the consulate attack.

In its promo Channel 10 states: “It was the day international terrorism rocked Sydney, and it was a miracle that hundreds weren’t killed or injured. Two days before Christmas in 1982, Sydney was targeted in twin attacks by terrorists. First a bomb at the Israeli Consulate in the city – then five hours later, another blast – this one at the Hakoah Club in nearby Bondi. Police believe the attacks were quite sophisticated with a great deal of planning and co-ordination with international terrorist groups. Almost 31 years on – WANTED can reveal that police have new clues and are closing in on the terrorists – who they believe are still in Sydney. In part one of this intriguing case, crime investigator, Neil Mercer who has been following the case for decades – presents a special report on the latest developments.’

J-Wire will leave it to Channel 10 to reveal the latest developments.

Wanted will screen nationally with the incidents to be screened on separate shows.  Monday September 23 will feature the Consulate bombing with the program highlighting the Hakoah explosion on Thursday September 26.

Both programs will be screened directly from CRIME STOPPERS  HQ in Sydney.
