The Shin Bet arrested a Kabatiya resident under suspicion that he stabbed an Italian tourist near the Old City in Jerusalem about a week ago, it was released for publication on Saturday.

The 24-year-old man, Ashraf Hanaysha confessed to the charges and re-enacted the incident. Hanaysha was associated with the Islamic Jihad.

The victim, Angelo Frammartino, 24, from Monte Rotondo, near Rome came to Israel in the beginning of August in order help establish a summer camp for Arab children in Jerusalem.

He was part of a group of 12 people sent by the cultural movement of the Italian workers' union. The tourist was scheduled to return to Italy on the day after the attack.

Frammartino was walking together with a few other tourists, when an assailant attacked him from behind, stabbing him in the back several times.
