According to the indictment, at the beginning of August the defendant decided to carry out a suicide attack in the Old City, where he intended to murder a Jew wearing a yarmulke.

For this purpose he equipped with a folding knife with a fixed blade about 10 cm long and a pepper gas canister, intending to locate a suitable victim, first spray him with pepper gas and stab him in the neck or back while he could not defend himself.

He instead aroused the suspicions of a local police officer and was arrested before he could begin his attack.
