Court extends remand of IDF soldier suspected of murdering Palestinian attacker

March 29, 2016 19:55

The IDF Military Court in Kastina on Tuesday granted a two-day extension of detention to an IDF soldier suspected of murdering a Palestinian terrorist, rejecting the prosecution's request for nine days.

The soldier's defense lawyers declared the move a sign that Lt.-Col. Judge Ronen Shor does not view the evidence in the case as obviously one-sided. On the other hand, the ruling could indicate that Shor believes the prosecution does not need further time to investigate the incident that occurred on Thursday in Hebron and has plenty of evidence already against the soldier.
