A Palestinian Arab from a village north of Yerushalayim was indicted this morning at Yerushalayim District Court for planning a shooting attack at the popular Malcha Mall, Shlomo Piotrokovski reports for Arutz Sheva.
Abed Al-Muatay Abu-Sneineh, a 22-year-old resident of Kfar Akib, contrived to carry out an attack while serving time at Ktziot Prison in southern Israel last July, together with fellow inmate Ihab Sheikh Subah.
According to the indictment Subah, who was released last September, told Abu-Sneineh that he intended to carry out a terror attack, and asked him to act as his accomplice. Abu-Sneineh agreed, and the pair determined to resume contact once both were released from prison,Piotrokovski reports.
Abu Snieneh said he planned to strike on a Thursday afternoon, when a high concentration of soldiers would be waiting at the nearby bus stations on their way home from base for the weekend.
