MK Danny Danon (Likud) plans to submit a bill on Sunday that is meant to serve as an additional deterrent to potential terrorists.

If the initiative becomes law, Israel will no longer return the bodies of terrorists who are killed while committing an act of terrorism.

"Our unfortunate experience shows us that terrorists' families turn their bodies into a way to encourage additional terrorist attacks," Danon said.
