Bodies of Palestinian Terrorists Transferred to Families

YERUSHALAYIM (AP) -

The Israeli military has transferred almost two dozen bodies of Palestinians it says were involved in terror activity over the past few months to their families in the Yehudah and Shomron areas.

The army says 23 bodies were handed over on Friday. Most were handed over in Chevron, where many of the Palestinian terrorists have come from.

In October, Israel began withholding the bodies of attackers as a tactic meant to crack down on terror activity.

There have been almost daily Palestinian terror attacks against Israeli civilians and soldiers over the past three and a half months. Palestinian terror attacks have claimed 21 lives on the Israeli side.
