The Supreme Court postponed Monday an appeal hearing to relieve punishment for a Beit Shemesh woman accused of abusing six of her 12 children.

The mother, a religious woman who wore clothing that covered her almost completely, was dubbed "Taliban mom."

An appeal hearing to increase the woman's punishment - a sentence of 4 years in prison - was also postponed.

In December, the State Prosecution Office appealed the punishment, which was ordered in November of last year, demanding a more severe sentence for the mother.
