Israel extends detention of Palestinian accused of killing Israeli

JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- An Israeli court extended the detention of Arafat Irfayia, on Monday, who was suspected of killing an Israeli settler who was dead in a forest, last week.

The Shin Bet, Israel's internal security agency, detained Irfayia, 29, for killing Ori Ansbacher, 19, who was stabbed to death in a forest between the Jerusalem Biblical Zoo and the al-Walaja village in the occupied West Bank.

Shin Bet is reportedly still investigating the motive, whether it was nationalistic or criminal.
