"At the same, France 2 is ready to help Mr. Jamal al-Dura in any way in exhuming the body of his son (Muhammad) from his grave for a pathological examination, including if necessary a DNA test to clarify the circumstances of the incident.

"It is hard to believe that the special committee formed by Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon did not approach France 2, and to the best of our knowledge, Mr. al-Dura as well, and despite Mr. al-Dura¹s readiness to remove his son's body from the grave, nothing was done about this.

"France 2 only learned about the existence of the committee from the article, and this speaks for itself."
