The Supreme Court on Monday debated over the appeal of Yitzhak Rabin assassin Yigal Amir and whether he will remain in solitary confinement for an additional six months.

During the debate, the state said it was willing to transfer Amir to coupled segregation, in which another prisoner would join Amir in a cell. However, Amir rejected the idea.

In response to the argument in which officials believe Amir may indoctrinate others once he comes out of solitary confinement, Amir said, "I had no intention to spread indoctrinations and I have no I idea what indoctrinations are being referred to."
