Tel Aviv terrorist suspect says he changed his mind
An anonymous terrorist suspect called Tel Aviv police forces on Monday, August 4, and said he was fully equipped with explosives, prepared to detonate a bomb, but experienced a last-minute change of heart. Following two terrorist attacks in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv was already in high-alert. The suspect explained, in Arabic, that he was from Hebron and currently in Tel Aviv, but unaware of his exact coordinates (apparently he was lost), right before being disconnected. A supposed recording of the phone call was uploaded onto social media; its authenticity hasn't been confirmed.
