The Arab who stabbed an Israeli female soldier in Jerusalem two weeks
ago threw his knife out a bus window as he was on his way to a hiding
place after the attack. This led to his arrest, it now turns out.
The suspected terrorist is an 18-year-old resident of eastern
Jerusalem. He was to be brought before the Magistrates´ Court on
Jerusalem for remand Monday, and police said it would ask to keep him
incarcerated until the end of legal proceedings against him.
The investigation has discovered that the terrorist left his home on
the morning of the attack equipped with a knife. When he reached the
gate to the school where he studies, he decided not to go in, and at
10 a.m. he took the light rail back to his home. When he went on the
train, he saw the female soldier and sat down opposite her.
A few seconds before the train stopped at his station, the terrorist
stabbed the young Jewish woman several times and when the doors
opened, and he ran away toward his home, where he met his brother and
told him what he had done.
He then got on a bus toward Kalandia, with the aim of hiding with
relatives in Ramallah. During the bus ride, he threw the knife out
the window of the bus. This information somehow reached the police.
At the Kalandia crossing, he was arrested, and he admitted his crime
in the initial interrogation. He said he had stabbed the soldier as
revenge for Israel´s actions against Arabs.
The investigation found that he acted independently and was not
affiliated with any terror group. (IsraelNationalNews © 2012 03/26/12)
