Al-Quds operation suspect turns himself in: Israeli media
Israeli media say the Palestinian man suspected to have carried out the shooting operation in occupied Al-Quds has turned himself in.
The Palestinian man suspected of carrying out the shooting operation in occupied Al-Quds, Amir Sidawi, arrived in a cab at the "Moriah" Checkpoint and turned himself to the Israeli occupation forces, Israeli media reported on Sunday.
Al Mayadeen correspondent reported Sunday that a number of Israeli settlers were wounded and others were killed in a shooting operation that targeted a bus in occupied Al-Quds in the pre-dawn hours.
Our correspondent confirmed that at least nine Israeli settlers were wounded in the shooting, pointing out that Israeli occupation forces (IOF) have not been able to arrest the person who carried out the operation.
The taxi driver that took Sidawi to his destination was also detained to be interrogated. He said he picked up Sidawi near the Israeli "Shaare Zedek" Medical Center.
Israeli media said Sidawi turned himself six hours after carrying out the operation in occupied Al-Quds. He was handed over to the Shin Bet security service for questioning.
The Jerusalem Post reported earlier that the shooter "managed to escape the scene and police are currently conducting searches in the area," adding that "Police helicopters were also operating in the area in search of the shooter."
Later on, Al Mayadeen's correspondent reported that Sidawi turned himself in to protect his family members after the Israeli occupation forces arrested several of them in order to push him out of hiding.
Reports revealed the operation had a huge impact on the Israeli occupation, giving rise to fears about an escalation in terms of operations in occupied Al-Quds and the occupied territories.
"The operation proved the failure of the Israeli security apparatus that resorts to collective punishment in order to make up for its failures," Al Mayadeen's correspondent added.
The Israeli ambulance service, Magen David Adom (Red Star of David), reported that the shooting left 10 wounded settlers, including two in critical condition.
