Remand extension requested for grenade suspect

Israeli Police will request on Monday to extend the remand of Amir Mulner, suspected in a string of hand grenade attacks in the Tel Aviv area, Army Radio reported. Mulner was arrested by officers from the Ayalon subdistrict on suspicion of involvement in a grenade attack on a home on Yitzhak Sade Street. The attack was apparently motivated by an unpaid black market debt to a crime boss in the region. After interrogating Mulner, police suspected that he was also involved in a number of recent grenade attacks on the house while acting on orders from the unnamed crime boss.
