Police have arrested two suspects from the town of Baka al-Garabiya on suspicion of carrying out a deadly robbery in Hod Hasharon last month, as well as carrying out another murder.

The suspects, named as Ahmed Akawai, 20, and Alaa Abu-Moch, 21, who were arrested earlier this month, allegedly carried out armed robberies in Tel Aviv and Ra'anana as well, police said, following the lifting of a media ban.

Both men have strenuously denied the suspicions against them.

The Kfar Saba Magistrate's Court extended their custody by ten days on Tuesday.
