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.

Abulhasan was accused of “manufacturing weapons, being in possession of a knife and attempted murder, by an Israeli court.” He is a student of civil engineering at Palestine Polytechnics in Hebron.

Israeli violations against Al-Aqsa Mosque, the third holiest site in Islam, has drastically increased with Israeli settlers storming it on a daily basis.
