Police investigating the fatal stabbing that took place in Petah Tikva on Sunday morning revealed that the stabber was mentally depressed following his expulsion from Abu Dis University. The attacker, identified as Ahmed Hafina, a 23-year-old resident of Kfar Sawiya near Nablus, infiltrated into Israel with eight Illegal workers journeying from east Jerusalem, Army Radio reported. Hafina told interrogators that he originally intended to commit suicide on the way to Petah Tikva, but the other passengers prevented him from doing so. Hafina previously refused to cooperate with police, choosing instead to mumble phrases from the Koran and to reveal that he planned the terror attack alone in order "to kill Jews".
