The state prosecution and lawyers for the main Jewish juvenile suspect suspected of killing a Palestinian woman on October 12 agreed to extend his detention by Wednesday, and the agreement was approved by the Magistrates Court in Rishon Lezion on Sunday.

While defense attorneys Honenu said they hope that the prosecution will withdraw during these indirect days from its intention to file an indictment against a minor, "Tz" (full name under the order). Jerusalem Post has received indications that an indictment has been issued for later this week.

None of the parties mentioned settlement negotiations, but such discussions – or consideration of the defense's arguments about reducing the gravity of the charge – could explain the delay.

Last week it was announced that the prosecution would be expected to file an indictment against Tz next week in the case of the killing of Palestinian Ajay Rabi.

The police have already filed a statement on the alleged charges last week, which is always an indictment in the indictment.

The police statement was not described in detail, but mentioned serious security offenses as well as the assassination of Rabbi.

It was a clue that the charge would be a murder, which could carry up to 20 years in prison, but a spokeswoman for the justice ministry refused to confirm what the charge would be.

Rabi, a mother of eight, was hit by stones while her husband drove her near Tapua's barrier to the West Bank and was shot dead on October 12.

She was injured when her stones hit her head and taken to the hospital where she died later.

From the very beginning, there were testimonies from the Palestinian side that Jewish rock throwers were involved, but nobody was caught until last week.

Four other minors were previously arrested by Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency), although they were released for more than a week.

Neither the police nor the Ministry of Justice commented on what charges could be charged, provoking speculations that they could not be accused or faced with very small charges.

Adi Keidar, a lawyer for a Jewish juvenile who was expected to be charged, said the case against his client was weak and based on a weak forensic evidence.

One issue that could be at trial in order to secure the murder or even murder from murder is that even if there is a way for the juvenile to tie the stones, it may be difficult to prove whether he threw the stone that killed Rabbi.

The second question can be to prove whether he intended to kill or just harass, which would also be a criminal offense, but it could be reduced to a careless murder.

Father Tz claimed that the boss was seated at Haaretz, where Tz was studying, testified that Tz was at a gathering in Shabbat at the time of the assassination of Rabbi – but he did not specify details regarding time.

The case revived the debate about Shin Bet's aggressive treatment with Jews accused of terrorism, and some said that they should be treated the same way as with Palestinian terrorists and others who say the agency has violated the rights of suspected minors.
