Ori Ansbacher’s killer remanded for 8 more days

The Jerusalem Magistrate’s Court extends the remand of a Palestinian man suspected of brutally murdering Israeli teen Ori Ansbacher earlier this month for eight more days.

Police requested the second remand from the court citing the need to keep him behind bars while all of the forensic evidence is examined.

Arafat Irfaiya, a 29-year-old Hebron resident, was arrested on February 8 in the West Bank city of Ramallah, with investigators from the Shin Bet security service and Israel Police hoping to indict him for murder in the context of a terrorist act, in addition to a charge of rape.
