A 95-year-old settler on Tuesday was indicted in Kfar Saba Magistrate's Court for sexually abusing two sisters, ages nine and eleven.

The man, Yosef Fischel, allegedly paid the girls between NIS 50 and NIS 400 each time he sexually abused them to encourage the sisters to come back to his home.

Fischel has been released to house arrest in his Karnei Shomron home.

Fischel has also been charged with possessing unlicensed weapon in his house since 1982, after police found a pistol and ammunition in his home.
