The Central District Court ruled on Tuesday to permit Yigal Amir to attend twice-weekly religious study sessions with a fellow prisoner during the next month.

A final decision over Amir's solitary confinement will be made next month, and the judge also ruled that the Prison Service will monitor Amir's study sessions and report to the court whether anything unusual took place.

Amir has been in solitary confinement ever since he was sentenced to a life term plus an additional 14 years for assassinating Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin in 1995.

Prison service and security officials have maintained that holding Amir in a regular cell with other prisoners would pose a considerable security risk.
