Police on Friday will bring two suspects involved in the Netanya gas explosion for a remand hearing at the Petah Tikva Magistrate's Court.

One of the suspects on Thursday was seen fiddling with cables, and was initially arrested, then released before being arrested again.

The other suspect, a gas technician, was called to the scene to repair the cables damaged by the first suspect. The technician later left the scene, and was arrested after the gas explosion. He is suspected of negligence.

Police have asked for an extension of the suspects' remand so they can question them over the weekend.
