HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Thousands of people in Dura south of Hebron participated in the funeral of Ahmad Ayid Faqih, whose remains were released after 12 year by Israeli forces Monday.

The funeral procession started with a military march from al-Ahli hospital in Hebron then mourners proceeded to Dura intellectual center, and then to Abu al-Ashush cemetery where he was buried.

Faqih’s mother said the release of her son’s remains were “a great victory that brings me great joy.”

Hebron Gov. Kamil Hmaid said that Israel's initial stalling in releasing the remains aimed to spoil the joy of his family and manipulate their feelings.

He added that the release of Palestinians’ remains were national achievements, and all Palestinians buried in numbered graves must be released.
