Israel Police announced arrest of ISIS-linked suspect in bus station terror bombings

Israeli Police on Tuesday announced the arrest of a suspect believed to be responsible for two bus station bombings that killed two people and injured more than 20 others last month, including two Americans.

A joint investigation by Israeli Police, security forces, and the Israeli Defense Forces led to the arrest of 26-year-old Aslam Faruch, a Palestinian resident of East Jerusalem. Police said the suspect harbors a Salafi-jihadist ideology that is linked to the terrorist organization ISIS.

Faruch, a mechanical engineer by training, is accused of orchestrating the attacks that occurred on Nov. 23, when bags laced with explosives were detonated remotely at two bus stations, according to Israeli Police. The bombings were condemned by global leaders, and U.S. Ambassador to Israel Tom Nides called the explosions “cowardly terrorist attacks.”
