Talia and Rotem Aflalo, sisters of 15-year-old Shalev Aflalo, who was killed in what was initially suspected to be a car accident and is now being investigated by the police as a deliberate murder, arrived at the Tel Aviv Magistrate's Court on Tuesday for hearings to extend the detention of two of the suspects in their brother's murder. In the coming hours, four of the suspects will be brought to a hearing to extend their detention. In Shalev's WhatsApp conversation with his twin sister, he warned, "Stop talking to [one of the murder suspects], leave him alone and don't talk to him. He didn't come to you, he came to me."
Talia, Shalev Aflalo's twin sister, shared her feelings before the remand extension hearing for the suspects in her brother's murder. "I'm mostly stressed, in a storm of emotions, you're going to meet the one who took your brother's life," she said. "You want to lash out but you can't because you're chained. I feel both anger and relief."

Rotem, Shalev's older sister, admitted that she was upset and stressed. "We've been waiting for this for a long time, to get the first remand extension, to see that the case progresses," she testified. "We want answers, we want to see them in the eyes, to be looked at. We see them every day on the street," she said of the suspects in her brother's murder, "walking and walking around. Seeing them on the street is as simple as a knife spinning, a little more and a little more." She continued, "I want them to look me in the eye and see that I continue to fight for the dead, for my mother and brother."
