Likud MK Ze'ev Elkin on Tuesday called on Israel not to return the bodies of  Marwan Kawasme and Amer Abu Aysha to the Palestinians until Israel gets back the bodies of two Israeli soldiers killed in action in Gaza during Operation Protective Edge.

The Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee chairman said that "Israel has proved once again that we know how to bring to justice whoever dares raise a hand against us."

He added: "I call on Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon to delay sending back the bodies of the lowly terrorists until Hamas gives us back the bodies of Hadar Goldin and Oron Shaul."
