BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israel has delivered the body of Raed Zeiter to the Palestinian Authority, which will transfer it to Nablus where he will be buried, the PA’s head of borders and crossings said.
Nathmi Mhanna told Ma'an that an investigation is still ongoing to determine the details of the incident, and that a joint committee will investigate the shooting.
Mhanna said that the crossing is now operating after three hours of closure.
Israeli forces early Monday shot Zeiter dead at the border crossing with Jordan. The military claimed he tried to attack security forces stationed in the area.
