Israel returns the bodies of 15 terrorists

Monday, February 14, 2005 | 
Despite the Hebron attack, Israel is continuing “gestures” aimed at strengthening the cease-fire. Today, the army returned the bodies of 15 terrorists to the Palestinians for burial. They were killed in bomb and shooting attacks over the past two years. It ‘s not clear why Israel held on to these bodies. The army usually returns bodies quickly because Islam, like Judaism, requires burial within 24 hours. In other moves, Israel plans to pull out of Biblical Jericho and release 500 Palestinian terrorists from jail this week. If it’s quiet in Jericho, Israel will withdraw from four more towns in Judea and Samaria.
