Jerusalem Gas Leak Terrorist Captured

Wednesday, March 12th, 2014

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.

Tuesday, March 4th, 2014

On Tuesday afternoon, Jerusalem fire fighters evacuated dozens of residents from three buildings in the Armon Hanatziv neighborhood in Jerusalem after multiple gas lines inside the different buildings were found severed.

A burning candle and other flammable materials were discovered near one of the cut lines.

Police believe the lines were intentionally cut in an attempted terror attack.

The gas lines were shut down and the buildings were ventilated.

The police are currently investigating the incident, with leads to the adjacent Arab neighborhood of Jabel Mukaber.

A Jerusalem Fire Department spokesperson stated that the fire fighters’ quick action and decisiveness prevent a large scale disaster, “They prevented a tragedy while putting themselves in a great personal danger,” he said.

Two months ago a couple and their infant were killed in a gas leak blast in the Jerusalem neighborhood of Giloh. Another 11 were wounded, including one severely.

A month ago a building collapsed in Acre as a result of sabotage of the gas lines in the building, killing five.
