Israel returns body of man killed last year to Gaza

GAZA CITY (Ma’an) — Israeli authorities transferred the body of a Palestinian man killed last year to the Gaza Strip on Sunday, Palestinian sources and an Israeli official said.

Palestinian sources told Ma’an that the body of Baseem Kamel al-Amour, 24, was transferred to the Gaza Strip and returned to his family.

Al-Amour was killed seven months ago after Israeli forces shot him near the Israeli town of Nirim, adjacent to the Gaza Strip, the sources added.

His family reported him missing last year and have been looking for him since his disappearance.

Major Guy Inbar, spokesperson for the office of the Coordinator for Government Activities in the Territories, told Ma’an that “the body of a terrorist involved in a terror attack on Nov. 26 was transferred to the Gaza Strip.”

Al-Amour’s body had been held in Israel since the attack last year, Inbar said, without providing further details.

The body was transferred via the Erez crossing.
