According to the Palestinian teen, it was his 15-year-old cousin, Hassan, who perpetrated the stabbings.
Investigators interrogated Manasra from his hospital bed at Hadassah University Medical Center in Ein Kerem.
"I was with my cousin, but I didn't stab anyone," he told authorities. "I even pleaded with him not to stab anyone. I didn't want to go through with it even though at first we left the house with the intention of stabbing Jews. This was after my cousin persuaded me to come with him. I was just afraid."
