A 17-year-old Palestinian boy turned himself in to police in the northern town of Afula early Monday morning after confessing that he had been sent by his Palestinian handlers to "kill Jews."
The boy arrived at the Afula police station carrying a plastic bag containing a large knife. The guard at the station asked the boy what he was doing, and the Palestinian did not hesitate to confess the purpose of his visit.
He was immediately arrested and taken in for questioning.
Police officials believe the boy was afraid to carry out his mission, and instead turned himself in. They are trying to determine who exactly sent the youth.
