PA daily: Terrorist's father fears that Israel is harvesting Palestinian "Martyrs'" organs

Headline: “The Martyrs’ (Shahids’) families are worried about organs being stolen from their sons’ bodies”
     “The father of Martyr (Shahid) Baha Alyan (i.e., terrorist, murdered 3 Israelis) and spokesman for the National Campaign to Return the Bodies of the Martyrs, Attorney Muhammad Alyan, confirmed yesterday [June 14, 2016] that there is speculation that some of those who are thought to be Martyrs held by the occupation authorities (i.e., Israel) are actually still alive. He emphasized that some of the Martyrs’ families have asked repeatedly to see their sons’ bodies, but the occupation continues to refuse that [request], or even to release any medical report about the circumstances of their death as Martyrs.
Alyan stated during a press conference held yesterday at the ALWATAN Center for Media that the families of the Martyrs are worried that some of the bodies have undergone abuse, as happened with the family of Martyr Hassan Manasrah that identified its son by a unique mark on his foot. He added that the Martyrs’ families are also worried about the Martyrs’ organs being stolen, and that they do not trust the occupation government and have demanded medical involvement to ensure that the Martyrs’ organs are not stolen.”
