The man, whose name has not been released, was also suspected to be involved in forging Israeli work permits for other migrants in exchange for money.

On Tuesday, the Guinean migrant appeared in the Rishon Lezion magistrate's court on suspicion of impersonation, forgery, acts likely to spread illness and illegal residence. The court extended the suspect's time in custody by six days.

Earlier on Tuesday, a 17-year-old woman was found dead with signs of violence on her body in a Ramle apartment. Police are investigating the incident.
