Earlier on Sunday, the Petah Tikva Magistrate's Court extended by two additional days the remand of Alex Ostrovsky, a resident of Eli suspected of infiltrating an IDF base and desecrating military equipment as part of a "price tag" attack.
During the hearing, police representatives said they found Ostrovsky's fingerprints in the base. His attorney, Adi Keidar, denied the charges on behalf of his client.
Some two weeks ago, a Peace Now activist fell victim to a "price tag" attack. It is suspected right-wing activists spray-painted hate slogans on her Jerusalem home's door. Other "price tag" acts include graffiti in the village of Burka and the torching of two cars nearby.
