An indictment will be presented on Wednesday against a suspect in the November bus bombing in Tel Aviv that wounded 28 Israelis, the suspect’s attorney and Tel Aviv police said Wednesday.

The suspect, a resident of Taibeh originally from Beit Lakia near Ramallah, was brought for a remand extension at the Tel Aviv Magistrate’s Court on Sunday, where his remand was extended until Wednesday. A prosecutor’s declaration supporting the extension was also submitted.

The Shin Bet and police said that several hours after the bombing on November 21 they managed to arrest the members of the Beit Lakia-based cell. The suspect brought before the court on Sunday is originally from the village as well but was able to move within the Green Line after marrying an Israeli Arab, the Shin Bet said. He is suspected of being the one who placed the bomb on the bus, before notifying the head of the cell, who then detonated it by phone, according to the Shin Bet.
