We had the information that we were going to attack the policemen, said the 18-year-old who confessed that he threw the naval flare that resulted in the serious injury of the 31-year-old policeman.

As he said in his confession at some point they were informed to get out. They went outside and got the items from other people which they threw at the police. He was given the naval flare and shown how to activate it.

When he activated it he hurled it and saw it hit the ground and then he saw the policeman to kneel, as he said.

He then re-entered the field with other people.

Authorities are continuing the investigation to determine if other people are involved. The 18-year-old is currently continuing to testify at GADA and the questions of the men of the sub-directorate dealing with violence have been focused to the people who, according to the perpetrator, organized the attack on the police officers

The 18-year-old was among the 424 people who were brought in by EL.AS immediately after the incidents.
