Palestinian, Ali Abulhasan, 20, from Hebron told his Israeli interrogators that he refused to detonate a bomb he had placed on an Israeli bus after he saw many children in it.
Abulhasan stated that after he saw the children, he moved to a nearby restaurant, where an Israeli security guard became suspicious and arrested him.
Abulhasan said he planned the attack because of the continuing Israeli attacks against Al-Aqsa Mosque. He added that he does not regret his decision, explaining that resisting the Israeli occupation is a duty.
