RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Israel on Sunday evening delivered the remains of Ahmad Ayid Faqih after years of withholding them from Faqih's family.
A committee to retrieve remains of Palestinians held by Israel said Israeli authorities delivered the body after popular and legal pressure in the last few hours after it was announced that the delivery of the body was delayed.
The campaign called for Palestinians to participate in Faqih’s funeral in his hometown of Dura, which will start with a military march in Hebron at 10 Am.
