RAMALLAH (Ma’an) – Israeli authorities will return next Sunday the remains of a young Palestinian woman held in a “numbered graves” cemetery for twelve years, Palestinian officials said Wednesday.

A committee tasked with retrieving “martyrs’ bodies” confirmed Wednesday that remains of Ayat Muhammad Lutfi al-Akhras from Duheisha refugee camp near Bethlehem will be delivered to her family at Tarqumia checkpoint to the southwest of Hebron on Sunday evening.

Six bodies have been returned recently out of 36 Israel pledged it would return.

According to the committee, freeing al-Akhras’ body brings the overall number of dead Palestinians retrieved from Israel to 100. On the other hand, remains of 281 Palestinians killed in confrontations with the Israeli forces are still held in “numbered graves” in Israel, the committee believes.

In addition, 65 others are considered missing.

Al-Akhras was killed on March 29, 2002 after she detonated an explosive belt in west Jerusalem killing two Israelis. She was 18 years old.

'Al-Akhras was killed on March 29, 2002 after she detonated an explosive belt in west Jerusalem killing two Israelis. She was 18 years old.' At least her death wasn't in vain.

It's illuminating reading Al-Akhras' biography. Apparently, the last straw for her was when the IDF shot and killed a friend while he was playing with his toddler. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ayat_al-Akhras . Israel has to expect this sort of thing if they keep grinding their boots into the the faces of the Palestinians. People can only take so much.

People can only take so much! There are many other people around the world who have seen far worse and have lost their entire families and yet they are not blowing people up.,
