An Israeli source reported that the Tel Aviv District Court indicted on Sunday three Arab residents of Israel of planning to place explosives on a railway tack near Netanya.

Two of the three defendants confessed to planning the attack, the source said, “They also discussed the possibility bombing the Azrieli Center skyscrapers, in Tel Aviv”.

The three were identified as Amin Zayouti, Mojahed Dukan and Sofian Nosseirat, residents of Taibeh. There confession was part of a plea bargain, and are expected to receive a maximum sentence of 15 years.   

Israeli online daily Ynet reported that Dukan obtained an Israeli citizenship in 2000 after moving from Balata refugee camp in Nablus.

The Ynet added that Dukan frequently visited Balata refugee camp and contacted Jamal Kawati, member of Al Aqsa Brigades, the military wing of Fateh movement.

An Israeli security source reported that Dukan was supposed to receive three explosive devices from his group in the West Bank and smuggle them to Israel in order to blow them up on the railway using a detonator in a cellular phone.

 Zayouti’s mission was to place the explosives at the railway track, the Ynet reported.
