Police lifted the gag order on the investigation regarding the attack which took place two weeks ago in the Nahalat Yitzhak neighborhood in Tel Aviv, according to a Channel 2 report.
The investigation revealed that the 17-year-old Palestinian stabbed a soldier with a screwdriver in order to be reunited with his deceased cousin.
A few months ago, the terrorists’ cousin was run over to death by a Bobcat tractor in a fatal work accident. The teenager, who was very close to his cousin, said he thought that the best way to join him in heaven is to kill an Israeli soldier.
The terrorist decided to randomly stab the first soldier he saw upon leaving the supermarket he worked at in the coastal city.
Police announced an indictment for attempted murder will be filed later this week.
