A 14-year-old terrorist who was imprisoned after hurling a firebomb at the house of senior Religious Zionist Rabbi Dov Lior is expected to be one of those released in the prisoner exchange deal, even though he has not formally stood trial.

The firebombing attack took place while Jerusalem Mayor Moshe Lion was visiting Rabbi Lior in his home.

The Honenu legal aid organization has appealed against the decision, saying that the culprit must not be allowed to return to the Jerusalem area, lest he re-offend.

According to the indictment, the accused watched a video tutorial on how to make firebombs, bought materials, and prepared two firebombs for use.

He is charged for illegal weapons offenses for purposes of terrorism, acts of terrorism, and causing damage through terrorism under aggravated circumstances of arson.

Attorney Haim Bleicher of the Honenu legal aid organization, who represents Rabbi Lior, commented: "Despite his young age, this is a dangerous terrorist who tried to kill people in the Beit Orot neighborhood of Jerusalem. For that reason, it is unfathomable that such a terrorist, like the other terrorists to be released in this deal, will return to the streets of Jerusalem for another chance to carry out his intentions. For that reason, we demand he be forbidden from entering Jerusalem."
