July 01, 2019

For the second day in a row, the Israeli occupation forces launched a series of arrests in the village of Issawiya targeting relatives of the Martyr Mohammed Samir Obeid.

Mohammed Abu Hummos, member of the follow-up committee in Issawiya, said that the occupation forces arrested: Fouad Obeid (a paramedic), Mahmoud Asem Obeid, Mahmoud Isam Obeid, Mohammed Said Obeid, Mahmoud Mohammed Obeid and Faiq Habash.

Conditions to release the body of Martyr Obeid

The lawyer of the Prisoners Affairs Committee, Mohammad Mahmoud, said that the Israeli police informed him of its consent to conduct an autopsy to the body of Mohammed Samir Obeid in the presence of a Palestinian doctor.

The lawyer added that the police stipulated that the body should be buried in the cemetery of Salah Al-Din Street, in the evening, with the presence of only 50 people. No flags and banners during the funeral and the burial must be in the evening. They also conditioned the family to pay NIS 25.000 (USD 7.000) to guarantee commitment to the conditions.

The lawyer Mahmoud denied all the conditions for the releasing of the body.

‘Israel’ has been holding bodies of over 45 Palestinians killed by Israeli forces, refusing to hand them over to their families. Other bodies of 253 estimated Palestinians are kept in Israeli burial sites and morgues known as “cemeteries of numbers”, named after the numbering system that replaces names on graves.
