JENIN (Ma'an) -- Israeli authorities have agreed to deliver the remains of a Palestinian man, who was killed by Israeli forces in 2002, to his family in the northern West Bank, an Israeli organization said Thursday.

The Supreme Court ruled that Israel would send the remains of Majdi Abd al-Jawad Khanfar to his family in the village of Silat al-Dhahir in the West Bank's Jenin district, a spokesperson for the Center for the Defense of the Individual told Ma'an.

The decision came in response to the center's demands for the release of the remains of every Palestinian currently held in Israel, the spokesman said.

Khanfar's remains will be delivered to his family on Jan. 26, he said, adding that a DNA match had already been confirmed.

The spokesman said Israel announced that the remains of Palestinians currently held in Israel would be distributed to their families after DNA tests were completed.

Khanfar was killed on March 30, 2002 after he and another member of Fatah's military wing attacked an Israeli checkpoint in the West Bank, killing an Israeli soldier.

Another for of cruelty . The man is dead. Keeping his body is to deny family closure and further punish them. No other explanation exists.
