JNS.org – Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has order Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon to no longer transfer the bodies of slain Palestinian terrorists to their families.

According to the Jerusalem Post, the reasoning behind the decision was to prevent opportunities for Palestinians to use the funerals of the slain terrorists for incitement.

Most Palestinians consider the terrorists to be “martyrs” and hold mass funerals where the bodies are paraded through their home village or city.

Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan had already been holding onto bodies of Israeli Arab terrorists and now that same policy will be extended into the West Bank.
