The Hamas cell that carried out the suicide attack on the Jerusalem public bus contained six militants and intended to carry out a series of terrorist attacks in and around Jerusalem, including suicide, shooting, and car-bombing attacks, it has been revealed in the Shin Bet investigation.

The cell specifically recruited Abed al-Hamid Abu Srour to carry out the suicide attack, and one of the cell’s members even helped him to write his will and filmed him before the attack.
