TEL AVIV (Ma'an) -- An Israeli court on Friday sentenced a Bedouin man from Tel as-Sabi near Beersheba to a year in prison after he was convicted of giving a ride to a Palestinian who later set an explosive device in an Israeli bus.

Defendant Mahmoud Abu Anza was sentenced to a year in prison and three months under probation as part of a plea bargain despite the fact that the District Attorney was convinced that Abu Anza was unaware that the man he picked up was carrying an explosive device.

In addition, the private car that the defendant was driving when he picked the man upwas confiscated.

Mahmoud Abu Anza picked up Sami al-Hreimi on Dec. 22, 2013. He dropped al-Hreimi off in Jaffa, and from there al-Hreimi boarded bus number 240 to Bat Yam, according to Israeli news site Ynet.

He left an explosive device in the bus before getting off with the plan to remotely detonate it. Passengers noticed the bag, however, and the bus was successfully evacuated before the explosive was detonated.

Israeli sources said that al-Hreimi brought the two-kilogram explosive device into Israel through an open area in Israel's separation wall in the south Hebron Hills. He confessed during interrogation that he used to work in a restaurant in Jaffa.

He also told interrogators that he was given a ride by a Bedouin man who drove him to central Israel without being aware that he was carrying an explosive device.

Following the attack, Israeli intelligence forces detained 14 Palestinians from across the West Bank accused of involvement. Among the detainees were four young men from Bethlehem in the southern West Bank affiliated to the Islamic Jihad movement including Shehadah al-Tamari, Hamdi al-Tamari and Sami al-Hreimi himself.

Maureen / Australia22/12/2013 19:01 "The passenger opened the bag, and saw wires." What a brave/stupid/Mossad opperative? False flag written all over this one!

Hetty / the Netherlands22/12/2013 19:41 As usual "wild" accusations without any proof. Ah well, it's the right time for a false flag and ofcourse it will reach the international news. The daily murders for sure done by the occupation forces never reach the news. With some intelligence one can see through this. Just another false flag. And nr 2 Rafael/ USA: i suggest to go to the ICC to finally get justice instead of these silly "piece" talks.

Re 'Colin Wright #4.' Not me. I would comment that Israel condemning an obvious innocent like this is further evidence of just how far from any civilized notion of justice that society is, though. As to the other faked posts, I fail to see how the reality of this attack somehow demonstrates that the various Israeli false-flag attacks over the years weren't false-flag attacks.

1,2,3,4,'s obsessive focus on Israel, and its refusal to recognise the very real threat posed by deliberately-orchestrated violent acts, suggests an agenda that has more to do with politics than human rights.”
