Israeli Arab MPs at “warm meeting” with relatives of ‎terrorists “will make every effort” to ‎have terrorists’ bodies returned

Father of terrorist Baha Alyan: “We met ‎today [Feb. 2, 2016] with Balad MPs: ‎Hanin Zoabi, Jamal Zahalka, and Basel ‎Ghattas. The meeting was warm and ‎productive. The Palestinian brothers, the ‎MPs, listened to the pain and suffering of ‎the relatives of the Martyrs (Shahids) ‎whose bodies are being held [by Israel]. ‎Their hearts were open, they listened to ‎every word the relatives of the Martyrs ‎said. They emphasized that they will make ‎every effort for the return of the bodies by ‎applying pressure to the government in ‎parliament and by contacting the relevant ‎political and security bodies in the Israeli ‎government. It was agreed to continue ‎meeting and to monitor the matter in the ‎near future.”‎
