Israeli Defense Minister Benny Gantz instructed the army to locate the remains of “Palestinian attackers” held in Israel to use them as “bargaining chip” for captured Israelis in Gaza.

Israel to locate Palestinians bodies for swap deal with Hamas

Gantz, who is also Israel’s alternate prime minister, ordered the military to step up efforts to locate the bodies of “Palestinians killed during attacks against Israelis” whose burials are unknown, the Hebrew-language Ynet news site reported.

The move came in the wake of reports on talks over a possible swap deal between Israel and Hamas, an Islamist Palestinian movement and group that runs the Gaza Strip.

Israel believes that two Israeli citizens, Avera Mengistu and Hisham a-Seid, who disappeared after willingly crossing to Gaza, are kept in the besieged Palestinian enclave.

In addition, Hamas is believed to hold the remains of Oron Shaul and Hadar Goldin, two soldiers killed during Israel’s military campaign in the Gaza Strip in 2014.

Israel has been holding bodies of Palestinians as bargaining chips for possible future negotiations.

According to B’Tselem, an Israeli-based human rights group, Israel is currently holding bodies of at least 52 Palestinian assailants or whom the army claims attempted such attacks, and is refusing to return them to their families.
