Israeli state prosecutors have filed a statement saying they will indict the Israeli teen who remains the main suspect in the death of a Palestinian woman in a rock-throwing attack.

Four of the five teens arrested and held by Israel’s security agency in the woman’s death were remanded last week to house arrest. The fifth remains in jail.

Also Tuesday, prosecutors asked the Rishon Lezion Magistrate’s Court to extend the detention of the jailed teen for five more days to allow them time to file the indictment. The request was approved, the Kan national broadcaster reported.

The teens are accused of involvement in a rock-throwing attack in mid-October at the Tapuah Junction in the northern West Bank that led to the death of Aisha Mohammed Rabi, 47, a Palestinian mother of nine.

Police last week raided the Pri Haaretz Yeshiva in the Rehalim settlement, which the teens attend, and summoned 80 students for questioning.

Help perform the greatest mitzvah: save a life

While life in Israel has returned to normal and hopes are high that Britain is set for a summer without restrictions thanks to vaccines, for billions around the world there is no such imminent light at the end of the tunnel. In the majority of countries around the globe, particularly the poorest, the vaccine rollout has barely kicked off.

That's why Jewish News, the leading source of news and opinion for the entire UK community, is throwing its full weight behind UNICEF’s VaccinAid campaign by using this platform usually reserved for encouraging donations towards our own journalism to instead urge our readers around the globe to perform the greatest mitzvah: saving a life.

We have never before done this for any charity fundraiser but it's hard to recall a campaign that affects so many people, and indeed an entire planet aching for a return to normality. Just like the Chief Rabbi and Rachel Riley, we hope to boost the mission to deliver two billion vaccines, 165 million treatments and 900 million test kits around the world by the end of this year.

Please donate as much as you can, in the spirit of the Talmudic sages: “to save one life is to save the world entire”
