Israel Police say they have identified a suspect who carried out a terror attack in the center of Israel earlier in July.

Prosecutors say they intend to indict a 33-year-old-man from the village of Einabus in the northern West Bank for attacking a 47 year-old-man on a pedestrian bridge between Bnei Brak and Givat Shmuel with a blunt object, causing mild injuries.

“The investigation of the suspect revealed that he planned to carry out the terror attack with nationalistic intent and even did groundwork in the days before the incident, in order to find a location and date suitable for it,” police say.
