A disagreement emerged Sunday between Jerusalem District Police and the State Attorney's Office over the release of the daughter of the terrorist who carried out last week's shooting attack in Jerusalem that killed two people.

While police believed that it was prudent to file a pre-indictment motion against the daughter of the terrorist, Musabach abu Sabich, and to remand her to further custody, the State Attorney's Office decided that she no longer posed a danger and therefore there was no justification to further detain her.

Police were instructed to appear at the court to release her on restrictive conditions.

Police had argued that the suspect's remarks following the terrorist attack, in which she expressed support for her father's actions and praised him as a hero in interviews to various media outlets, established her as a danger to the public who is suspected of serious incitement charges.

The prosecutors, however, held that she no longer serves an immediate danger to the public, despite the severity of her comments.

The prosecution still intends to issue an indictment against the suspect, who is a minor, in the near future.
