Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit will close the probe against police officers involved in a chase in 2020, during which a settler teen died, the Kan public broadcaster reports.

Ahuvia Sandak, 16, was killed in a car crash while fleeing from police, allegedly after throwing rocks at Palestinians. Repeated recent protests over Sandak’s death have escalated into violence and arrests.

The report, says Mandelblit, will likely press charges against some or all of the young settlers who were with Sandak in the vehicle, over dangerous driving during the police chase.
