JERUSALEM (AFP) – An Israeli court on Thursday ordered the release to house arrest of a former settler suspected of killing four Palestinians and wounding seven others more than ten years ago, Israeli media reported.
Haim Pearlman, 29, a former West Bank settler now living in central Israel, was arrested in mid-July in connection with a string of stabbings during the late 1990s.
But on Thursday a court in Petah Tikvah near Tel Aviv ordered his release to house arrest, denying repeated requests by prosecutors and the police to extend his remand in custody, Israeli public and army radio said.
