Israel to deliver 7 Palestinian bodies to West Bank families

Oct. 24, 2013 6:22 P.M. (Updated: Oct. 27, 2013 11:20 A.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Israeli authorities agreed Thursday to return the bodies of seven Palestinians killed by the Israeli army, a Palestinian official told Ma'an.

Salem Khelleh, an official in charge of a national campaign to return the remains to West Bank families, said Israel would deliver the bodies to Qalqiliya on Nov. 5.

Khelleh told Ma'an the names of the seven deceased Palestinians:

Ahmad Yasser Saleh from Asira al-Qibliya - Nablus

Ayat al-Akhras from Dheisheh refugee camp - Bethlehem

Sami Bsharat from Tammun - Jenin

Majdi Khanfar from Silat al-Dhahr - Jenin

Mohammad Mustafa Shahin from Doura - Hebron

Ahmad Ayed al-Faqih from Dura - Hebron

Mahmoud al-Qawasmi - Hebron

Before the bodies are delivered to their respective families, Khelleh said, they will be taken to the medical center at al-Quds University for DNA testing.

Israel's decision to return the bodies comes in conjunction with the US-brokered peace talks with the Palestinians.
