An Israeli-American teen, unnamed because of his age, was indicted in Tel Aviv, Israel, on April 24 for making more than 2,000 bomb threats to Jewish centers in the United States.

He also called “airports, airlines companies, schools, police departments, hospitals, and many more,” according to the prosecuting attorney Jonathan Hadad.

The teen faces thousands of charges including extortion, publishing false information that caused panic, computer offences, and money laundering.

The teen was charged in absentia in federal court in Orlando, Florida, on April 21 with 28 counts of making threatening calls and conveying false information to police. He faces further charges in Athens, Georgia.

The teen’s defense attorney claimed that the young man has a history of mental illness.
