The deal reached between Israel and Palestinian prisoners Monday includes a pledge to transfer the bodies of 100 terrorists, some of whom were involved in suicide bombings to the Palestinian Authority.

That transfer is expected to take place in a number of days. This is an issue that was discussed in the past, but put on hold while Gilad Schalit remained in Hamas captivity.

One official said that Israel would be watching how the PA handled the re-interment of the bodies, and did not want to see them granted hero status.

One way of showing reciprocity, the official hinted, would be to ensure that the terrorists who will be re-buried in the PA are done so without the fanfare that accompanies the burial of heroes.
