A fanatic Israeli settler launched threats via WhatsApp to detonate holy al-Aqsa Mosque—the third holiest site in Islam.
According to the Hebrew-speaking Israel Hayom newspaper, Tel Aviv police received a notification about a preplanned blast at al-Aqsa.
Following a police probe into the communiqué, preliminary investigation identified the settler as a 20-year-old Israeli from Bani Barak community.
The suspect was brought before the Magistrate’s Court in Tel Aviv and had his remand extended under police request.
“The threats against al-Aqsa are strategic threats to the state of Israel,” said the police spokesman.
The defense attorney claimed the defendant suffers from psychological disorders and that he just wanted to show off.
