Indictments were filed in the Central District Court in Petah Tikva on Thursday charging two Baka al-Gharbiya residents with the murder of a store owner during an armed robbery in Hod Hasharon.

According to the indictments, filed by the Central District Attorney's Office, Ahmed Akawai, 20, and Alaa Abu Moch, 21 deliberately shot and murdered 42-year-old Yehuda Weizelberg, after he gave chase to the two when they robbed his jewelry store.

The murder is alleged to have taken place as Abu Moch and Akawai targeted jewelry stores across central Israel in a series of armed robberies in August.
