An indictment is filed against Rashid Rashak, an East Jerusalem man accused of leading a Hamas cell that allegedly planned several terror attacks, including the assassination of far-right MK Itamar Ben Gvir.

Prosecutors ask the court to keep Rashak, 22, in custody until the end of legal proceedings.

He is the fourth person to be charged in the case. Another suspect has yet to be indicted.
