Palestinians in the Gaza Strip are handing out sweets to celebrate the handover of two coffins believed to contain the bodies of Israeli soldiers. Dozens of Palestinians, holding Palestinian and Lebanese flags, rejoiced Wednesday at the prospect that the terrorist, Samir Kuntar, would be freed. Some hoisted posters of Kuntar and handed out sweets to drivers. One of the celebrants was a former cellmate of Kuntar's in an Israeli prison. Jaber Weshah said, "Today is a true day of joy for all Palestinians and all freedom lovers across the world."
