In separate court hearings on Friday, suspects Aharon Mesika, Lial Peretz and Chen Harel were released to house arrest until May 23, after paying bail bonds.

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.
