The police and Israeli security services have captured the alleged terrorist who tried to blow up three buildings in Armon HaNatziv in Jerusalem, in a mega attack in March.

It’s now been revealed that he had tried to blow up a total of eight buildings in an attempted terror attack just 2 days before.

The man was identified as Aziz Musa Salam Awisat, age 49 and father of 6. Awisat holds Jerusalem Resident status. He lives in Jabal Mukaber.

Awisat admitted to police that after hearing of the gas explosion in Gilo that killed a family and destroyed a building, he was inspired to commit a terror attack that would do the same.

Awisat allegedly cut the gas pipes inside a total of eight buildings on February 28 and March 2, and lit a flame next to them, hoping it would set off a massive explosion, blowing up the buildings and everyone inside.

The gas leak was detected and the Jerusalem fire department evacuated the buildings in time.

DNA left behind at the scene of the attacks was used to find Awisat.

During the investigation police discovered that Awisat also attacked an elderly Haredi Jew on HaNeviim Street in Jerusalem in 2012, hitting him with an ax.

  1. And how long will Israel hold him before he's released? And why is there no death penalty for crimes like this? Just askin'….

  2. This is a true dummy!

    I can't imagine this muslim, living in Jerusalem, married and a father, would attempt to blow up buildings and the people inside all because of his stupid beliefs..shame on him..he should spend a lot of time in prison ..hopefully none of his children follow in his footsteps..

  4. So glad the saboteur was found. I am sorry for his family and hope they do not follow in his footsteps with respect to the hatred and desire to do harm.

  5. Give him the chair, so he cannot destroy other people anymore. Capital punishment is a deterrent.
