The Haifa Magistrate's Court on Thursday extended by three days the police custody of the father of Nashat Milhem, the suspected gunman in the deadly New Year's Day shooting in Tel Aviv.

On Tuesday, police arrested Milhem's father, Muhammad, on suspicion of being an accomplice to the attack that left two Israelis dead.

In addition to the father who identified his son to police, the court also extended the remand of a brother and another relative of the suspected gunman.
