The three suspects have been named as: Mohammad Ihab Sharif, 22; formersecurity prisoner Mohammad Hamad Mohammad Jazala, 23; and Ahmad Omar Mohammad Mahajana, 19.
Other individuals detained in the operation include: Ahmad Ali Halil Ahmad, a 26-year-old resident of Nazareth who was sentenced to life in prison for the murder of Yafim Weinstein in 2009 and Ali Halil Salim Ahmad, Ahmad’s 55-year-old father.
Both are accused of providing the Yafia youths with the necessary weapons to commit a series of attacks across the Jewish state.
Upon interrogation, the suspects admitted to having planned the attack for over a year. The three said that they gathered weapons, learned how to use them and gathered intelligence about the IDF base.
