The Nazareth District Court on Monday extended the solitary confinement of Yigal Amir, serving a life sentence plus 14 years for murdering prime minister Yitzhak Rabin, by six months. Amir had requested last week to be moved from his cell at Ramle's Ayalon Prison to the facility's religious section. Since killing Rabin, Amir has been kept in isolation; his solitary confinement was due to end on July 9, but the state asked for it to be extended since Amir was proselytizing his extreme right-wing theories to other inmates.
