Members of families of 36 Arab terrorists, whose remains are in Israeli custody, gathered at a checkpoint in the Tulkarem area on Tuesday 2 Kislev 5774. Military officials took DNA samples from family members towards positively identifying the remains of the 36.
Once the positive identification process has been completed, the bodies will be handed over to the families in compliance with another Supreme Court ruling.
Representatives of the families filed a petition with Israel’s Supreme Court, leading to the action to confirm their identities and turn the remains over to the PA (Palestinian Authority) families.
