The IDF Court of Appeals convened Friday for an appeal hearing over the release to an army base of a soldier who shot a subdued Palestinian terrorist in Hebron last week.

The prosecution in the case filed the appeal early Friday morning to the military court at the Defense Ministry's Kirya compound in Tel Aviv, requesting the soldier remain in military police custody for an additional seven days.

During a remand hearing on Thursday, IDF Lt.-Col. Judge Ronen Shor ordered the suspect soldier be confined to base under remand for an additional seven days. The ruling was frozen until the prosecution filed their appeal on Friday.
