The father of Nur al-Din Abu Hashiya, the animal who stabbed an Israeli soldier Monday in Tel Aviv, said that his son left the house east of Nablus on Sunday looking for a job in Israel.
Khaled Abu Hashiya, of Askar refugee camp, told Ma’an that he was “really surprised” when he heard the news that his 18-year-old son was the suspect in the stabbing of an Israeli soldier.
The father added that his son left the house “normally.”
“I do not know what to say right now but I want to know how my son is doing,” Abu Hashiya said.
The Fatah-affiliated family of Abu Hashiya lives in the Askar camp east of Nablus; Khaled Abu Hashiya is a father of six including Nur al-Din.
