Israel’s military prosecutor filed an indictment against the head of a Palestinian terrorist cell who organized the bombing of a bus in Tel Aviv.
Ahmad Salah Ahmad Musa, 25, was charged Wednesday with murder, conspiracy to commit murder, dealing in weapons and materials for war, creating an explosive, membership in an illegal organization and incitement, according to The Jerusalem Post.
Musa allegedly recruited other Palestinians to help him plan and carry out the attack.
A bomb planted on the No. 142 bus in central Tel Aviv detonated on Nov. 21 during Israel’s Operation Pillar of Defense as the bus drove near the Kirya, the Israeli military’s headquarters. More than 20 bus passengers were injured in the attack.
Musa is accused of heading the terror cell as well as making the bombs and recruiting help. It is believed that he detonated the bomb remotely using a cell phone. He allegedly also planned other attacks.
Mohammed Mafarja, 18, was charged last month with planting the bomb. According to his indictment, Mafarja planted the bomb on behalf of Hamas, which runs the Gaza Strip, to help the group during the conflict.
The teen has Israeli citizenship as part of a Palestinian family unification program and worked in the city of Modiin. Along with Musa and Mafarja, two other members of the terror cell, all from Judea and Samaria, were arrested in connection with the attack.
