On Monday afternoon security sources announced that one month ago, patrol officers in the northern city of Hadera last night noticed a suspicious man sitting at a bus stop late at night.
The officers approached the man and asked him to identify himself. Initial inspections showed the 21-year-old was from Tulkarem, and was in pre-1967 Israel illegally. As officers attempted to question the suspect, he pulled out a knife and tried to stab them, disobeying orders to put the knife away.
During a joint interrogation by Israel Police’s Central Unit, the suspect admitted that he had planned to stab a soldier at the bus station.
