Likewise, the occupation is holding 26 of their bodies, steals the Martyrs’ organs, and sells them. Ambassador Aref made a connection between the last two acts of terror which struck in France and Lebanon, and the Israeli acts of terror against our Palestinian people, and called to come out against this terror through a unified international standpoint, and especially against the organized Israeli terror against our people.”

There has been one case of organ theft in Israel's history. In 2001, an Israeli investigative journalist exposed that from the years 1988 to 2000, doctors under  chief pathologist Yehuda Hiss at the Abu Kabir Institute of Forensic Medicine at times took body parts without permission from relatives, for research and transplants of skin and corneas. Most body parts were taken from Israeli Jews, but the theft also included body parts from Israeli Arabs, Israeli soldiers and Palestinian terrorists. There has been no documented case since then.
