The Israel Police suspects that the Israeli-American teenager who has been accused of calling in fake bomb threats to Jewish Community Centers in the US last year made more fake bomb threats from prison, Hadashot news reported Monday. The targets of the new threats were Israeli schools in Petah Tikvah, Kfar Saba and Tel Aviv.

During his remand hearing today, the police representative claimed that the young Ashkelon resident called the Israel Police hotline over 100 times using the phone in Ramla’s Nitzan prison, where he is being held. Every time, police officers rushed to the schools to investigate the threat. In some cases, the schools were even evacuated.

According to Hadashot news, the suspect partially cooperated with police when questioned about the new hoax bomb threats.
