The IDF Prosecutor on Wednesday filed an indictment against the alleged “mastermind” of the Tel Aviv bus bombing which injured 24 passengers during Operation Pillar of Defense with the West Bank Military Court of Yehuda.
The indictment alleges that Ahmad Salah Ahmad Musa, a 25-year-old resident of Beit Likya headed the terror cell and was the mastermind of the attack.
Musa is charged with attempted murder, conspiracy to commit murder, dealing in weapons and materials for war, creating an explosive, membership in an illegal organization and incitement, among other things.
According to the indictment, Musa recruited other Palestinians to assist him to carry out a terror attack acquired the weaponry for the attack and even led tours of potential targets with them to facilitate the attack.
One of Musa’s recruits was Muhammad Abed al-Jaffer Nasser Mafarja, an 18-year-old resident of Taiba, who actually perpetrated the bus bombing.
Mafaraja was indicted in Tel Aviv District Court on December 19.
Fuad Rabah Shukri Atzi, a 27-yearold Beit Likya resident; and; Muhammad Mahfud Said Damra, a 25-year-old resident of Kafr Mazra near Ramallah were also allegedly members of the terror cell.
Two separate indictments have been filed against them in the Military Court in Yehuda for dealing in weaponry and failing to prevent a felony.
Mafaraja was indicted in Tel Aviv because he was an Israeli citizen, whereas Musa and the others were indicted in the West Bank courts as residents of Ramallah.
According to the indictment, Musa served as the head of the cell and was in charge of acquiring intelligence on the targets, making the bombs and recruiting others to place the bombs. He is suspected of remotely detonating the Tel Aviv bomb and police said he admitted to planning other attacks during his interrogation.
The Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) said that Musa taught himself how to make the remote-detonated bomb by watching videos online. The medium-sized bomb was packed with over 800 screws and used fireworks components as its explosive ingredient.
Musa also attempted to recruit would-be suicide bombers – including from among the student population at Bir Zeit University in Ramallah, where Mafarja also studied – but was unsuccessful, the Shin Bet added. It also alleged that he planned to carry out a drive-by shooting of soldiers in the West Bank.
