Also Wednesday, Israel charged an Arab citizen with attempted murder in connection with the bombing of a Tel Aviv bus last month.

Mohammed Mafarja, 18, was accused of planting a bomb on the bus during Israel’s offensive in the Gaza Strip. According to the Israeli indictment, he carried out the attack in solidarity with Gaza Palestinians and to avenge Israel’s assassination of Hamas military commander Ahmad Jabari. The bomb exploded minutes after Mafarja disembarked, wounding 27 people.
