The perpetrator of a March 4 ramming attack in Acre, Malek Yusef Nahar Asadi, was nationalistically and politically motivated, Shin Bet officials confirmed Thursday.

Police and Shin Bet interrogated Asadi, 26, a resident of Shfaram, who was arrested at the scene. Four Israelis were injured in the attack, including two IDF soldiers and a border policeman.

The Haifa prosecutor's office indicted Asadi on terrorism charges.
