The IDF agreed on Thursday to return the body of a slain Palestinian, who was suspected of planning attacks against Israel, according to the Palestinian Red Crescent.

The IDF will hand over the body of Basel al-Araj at the Walaja checkpoint at 3PM in the Bethlehem governorate, a Red Crescent spokeswoman said.

An IDF spokesman declined to comment on whether there is an agreement to return the body.
