The 19-year-old Palestinian terrorist who Hamas says put the bomb on the #12 bus on Monday was “a very regular kid,” a source familiar with the family told The Times of Israel on Wednesday night.
The “kid” was from the al-Ayda refugee camp near Bais Lechem. He was ID’d as the bomber shortly after he died at Shaarei Tzedek hospital in Yerushalayim.
The bomb injured 21 people.
TOI reports that the terrorist’s cousin was recently killed by the IDF in clashes. The bomb may have been revenge.
