Avinoam Braverman, the 33-year-old Tel Aviv man suspected of rape, sodomizing minors, indecent acts, sexual harassment and possessing and distributing pedophilic material, had his remand extended by another five days Wednesday.

Braverman, who once served in a specialized IDF computer unit, allegedly targeted girls aged eight to 15 in recent years, luring them into text-based and video communications, in which he exposed himself, masturbated in front of them and convinced at least three of them to have sex with him.
