An illegal resident who planned to carry out a shooting attack walked for nearly two hours in Rosh HaAyin, with his weapon loaded - until he was arrested by security forces.

The person who sold him the weapon is believed to have been an Israeli contractor - according to an indictment filed recently.

According to the indictment, the terrorist first encountered a woman and her daughter. He almost fired his weapon, but left when he heard the girl say "mother."

The suspect then encountered a religious man and was prepared to shoot him, but again stopped when he saw saw that the man was with a small child. He then met a group of men and almost shot them but took pity on the families they support and decided to leave them alone as well. Shortly afterwards he was arrested.
