“Martyr (Shahid) Baha Alyan’s family refused to receive their son’s body under the conditions that were dictated by the occupation: The delivery of their Martyr son’s body in the presence of only 15 people, and his burial at [the cemetery adjacent to] the Lions’ Gate [of Jerusalem’s Old City] at midnight.
The Martyr’s father said in a press release that the family rejected the Israeli proposal due to the small number of participants [allowed] at the funeral…
