In a joint IDF and ISA arrest activity on October 10, a Palestinian youth aged 14 who had been asked to carry out a suicide attack was arrested in his house in Nablus. During his questioning, the youth revealed that he had been coerced to carry out a suicide attack by Rabi'ah Farid Mousah Abu Alil, 23, a wanted Tanzim operative from the Balata refugee camp in Nablus. Abu Alil attempted to convince the youth to carry out the attack, after the youth quarreled with his father over a matter of money theft. Despite the youth's pleas that he be released to his home and left alone, Tirawi and Abu Alil threatened him that if he did not cooperate, they would kill him and distribute a communiqué claiming the he had been collaborating with the Israeli army.
