ISRAEL WITHHOLDIN­G PALESTINE STABBERS’ BODIES

-

TEL AVIV: Bodies of dead Palestinia­n attackers will not be handed over to their families if the Palestinia­n Authority does not guarantee that calm is preserved during their funerals, Israeli defence minister Moshe Yaalon warned on Sunday. Israel has demanded that funerals be conducted late at night and with attendance limited to family members. This policy, officials say, should keep the attackers from being glorified and reduce the numbers of instances in which attendees throw stones and petrol bombs at Israeli security forces. – dpa
