Remand Extended 4 Days in Tel Aviv Bus Bombing

The Tel Aviv Magistrates Court extended by four days, Sunday, the remand of an Israeli Arab, previously a resident of the Palestinian Authority (PA), suspected in the bombing of a bus outside the Tel Aviv office of the Justice Ministry during the Pillar of Defense counter-terror operation in Gaza. The hearing took just a few minutes.

The suspect is an Israeli citizen by virtue of a law that allows PA residents to acquire citizenship through marriage in the name of family unification.
