Police have described Gabriel Hen, the Jewish Acre resident who drove his vehicle into a bus stop full of people on Thursday, as suffering from a long history of mental illness, Channel 2 reported Friday night.

According to authorities, Hen's mental problems were severe enough to have warranted institutionalization and that he had not received a sufficient degree of treatment before he drove his vehicle into the bus stop on Thursday.

At least two people, both IDF soldiers, died as a result of injuries suffered from the attack.
