Hebron chief prosecutor calls for autopsy to be done on terrorists bodies to check if Israel stole their organs

Headline: “Hebron turned out in full to receive its 5 Martyrs”
     “Hebron turned out in full last night [Oct. 30, 2015] to receive the bodies of 5 Martyrs (Shahids) after they were handed over by the occupation at the Tarqumiya crossing. [The Martyrs] rose [to Heaven] after the occupation forces recently carried out executions in cold blood [targeting] the youth of the city. The Martyrs whose bodies were handed over are the young women Bayan Al-Esseili and Dania Arshid, and the young men Husam Al-Ja’abri, Bashar Al-Ja’abri, and Bashar Al-Natsheh. It was decided that their funeral will take place on Saturday in a spectacular unified procession toward the Al-Shuhada cemetery (i.e., the Martyrs’ cemetery). The bodies were taken from the crossing in ambulances to the Muqata’a (i.e, government compound), where a young woman received them in an official public ceremony in which thousands of [Palestinian] citizens participated, led by the Martyrs’ families, the governor of the Hebron district, the heads of security and officials, people of high rank, and dignitaries from the district...  The large turnout of residents of Hebron at the reception for the Martyrs’ bodies reflects the suffering and pain that the public is experiencing due to the occupation’s crimes, and they considered the reception for them a ‘national, religious, and moral obligation to the Martyrs, which is held in recognition of them.’ Hebron’s Chief Prosecutor Ashraf Mashaal emphasized to Al-Hayat Al-Jadida the importance of doing an autopsy on the five bodies after receiving their families’ permission. This is in order to document the occupation’s crimes and submit reports to the relevant committee in the presidency, in preparation for their submission to the international criminal court in order to condemn the occupation, especially as they were left to bleed for a long time before they died, and also in order to verify that the occupation did not steal their organs.
At the same time, Governor of Hebron District Kamel Hamid emphasized that the process of handing them over took place after intense efforts of [PA] President Mahmoud Abbas and international bodies, and emphasized that the efforts to bring back the rest of the Martyrs being held by the occupation will continue. .. The district governor said that official and public interest in bringing back the Martyrs is a holy duty and a message to the occupation that our people honors its Martyrs and will not abandon the blood of its sons. Hamid emphasized that we will not cease our diplomatic efforts and efforts in the field to defeat the occupation.”
