Abulhasan stated that after he saw the children, he moved to a nearby restaurant, where an Israeli security guard became suspicious and arrested him.

Abulhasan said he planned the attack because of the continuing Israeli attacks against Al-Aqsa Mosque. He added that he does not regret his decision, explaining that resisting the Israeli occupation is a duty

Abulhasan was accused of “manufacturing weapons, being in possession of a knife and attempted murder, by an Israeli court.” He is a student of civil engineering at Palestine Polytechnics in Hebron.
