The Tel Aviv District Court on Monday remanded alleged Tel Aviv bus bomber Muhammad Abed al-Jaffer Nasser Mafarja until the conclusion of legal proceedings against him. Mafarja was indicted for planting an explosive device during Operation Pillar of Defense late last year.

The 18-year-old Taiba resident was charged with aiding the enemy in a time of war, dozens of counts of attempted murder, conspiracy to commit a crime, causing an explosion, aggravated assault, illegally transporting weapons and giving assistance to an illegal organization.

Originally from the West Bank, Mafarja was able to move within the Green Line and acquire Israeli identification documents after a family reunification. Twenty-six people were injured in the November 21 bus bombing in Tel Aviv, which took place a week after Operation Pillar of Defense began in Gaza.
