Hamad, 29, is the son of a Jordanian father and an Israeli mother.


Hamad was trained by Hamas in Damascus in 2004 before he was sent to Israel on reconnaissance missions. He rented a house in an Arab village near Jerusalem.


He was arrested on November 21 last year, two weeks before his planned kidnapping attack.
