The court also issued injunctions banning the three from leaving the country until November 11.

The court released a fourth suspect, Shalom Maor Maman, to full house arrest on Wednesday.

On Monday, the court extended the remand of the primary suspect in the case, 22-year-old Idan Ohion, for eight days. Ohion will be brought before the court next week for a further remand hearing.
