The details are a bit sketchy at the moment, but it appears that the car used in the attack was registered to a Jewish woman from Jerusalem, and it was not reported as being stolen. The police however report that the woman was not involved, most likely it’s a case of a forged licence.
The Free Galilee terrorist group, or Galilee Liberation Organization (GLO), has claimed responsibility for past acts of terrorism, such as the murders of Michael Ronkin and Oleg Shaichat. They are group of Israeli Arabs with no known connection with Hamas. Thankfully their murderous intentions were not carried out this time around, and that this incident results in some very good leading to their eventual arrest. KGS
