B.M | DOP -

Above 140 International organizations have launched a campaign calling for Israel to release the bodies of Palestinian victims held by its authorities.

The International Campaign to Liberate the Remains of Palestinian Martyrs expressed solidarity with the families of Palestinian victims whose bodies are held.

The campaign is scheduled to start from March 11 to March 18, Samidoun Network reported.

Israeli occupation authorities hold the bodies of 256 Palestinian victims killed by Israeli forces in the Cemetery of Numbers. 131 others are held in the morgues.

Human rights institutions said that the Israeli policy of holding the bodies of Palestinian victims has been used since 1948.

Israel  has significantly escalated holding the victims’ bodies since the development of the Palestinian revolution after 4 June 1967
