Israeli authorities on Friday handed back the bodies of the three Palestinian terrorists who committed the attack in the Old City of Jerusalem on Wednesday that claimed the life of a Border Police officer.
The bodies of the three Palestinians were given to the Palestinian Red Crescent Society after Israel reportedly conditioned the exchange on a pledge from the families not to use their funerals as a stage for a political rally and procession.
The three men were from the West Bank town of Jenin and the nearby village of Kabatiya.
