Occupied Palestine (QNN)- The Israeli authorities on Friday tried to hand over the body of an unknown person instead of the body of the child Amjad Abu Sultan. Both victims were killed by the Israelis.
Local sources said Israeli forces brought a dead body to Al Jab’a military checkpoint in the southwest of Bethlehem but the family of Amjad Abu Sultan stressed that it was not the body of their child. The Israelis, thus, delayed the delivery.
The correspondent of the Israeli Kan News said that residents returned the body after they realized that it wasn’t for Abu Sultan, who was killed by the Israeli army last October.
He cited a spokesperson for the Israeli army as saying that it was a “human error” and competent authorities will investigate the incident. He also said that they will deliver the body of the child on Saturday.
