JNS.orgBulgaria identified a third suspect in the Burgas bus bombing that killed five Israeli tourists and one Bulgarian on the 2nd anniversary of the July 18, 2012 terror attack.

The third suspect, identified as Mohamad Hassan El Husseini, is a dual citizen of Lebanon and France who used a fake driver’s license under the name Jacque Felipe Martin, Bulgaria’s State Agency for National Security said, the Bulgarian news service Focus reported.

According to the report, it is known that friends and relatives of Husseini praised him as a “martyr” on social media.

The two other suspects involved in the terror attack are Meliad Farah and Hassan El Hajj Hassan.

Bulgaria has accused Hezbollah of being behind the attack. Last year, the European Union, largely in response to the Burgas bombing, designated Hezbollah’s military wing as a terrorist organization.
