“The suspect was named by the Shin Bet security service as Muhammed Arfaaya, a 22-year-old resident of Hebron. […]

The Shin Bet said that Arfaaya was released from Israeli prison last year, after he served a sentence for carrying a weapon and throwing stones.

According to the Shin Bet, Arfaaya claimed nationalistic motives drove him to hurt the Israelis. The agency was also looking into whether the suspect was incited by calls on social networks to carry out attacks against Israelis.”

Like numerous other recent attacks, this incident was not reported by the BBC.
