Fatah official: Israel "uses Palestinian Martyrs' bodies as an experimental field" and there are "many suspicions" that Israel steals their organs

Headline: “Al-Wahidi: Israel is the only country in the world that allows torture and punishes people after their death”
“Spokesman of the Fatah Commission of Prisoners and Released Prisoners' Affairs in the Gaza Strip and member of the prisoner committee of the National and Islamic Forces Nashat Al-Wahidi emphasized that the decision of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu yesterday, Monday, March 28, 2016, to prevent the handing over and return of Palestinian Martyrs’ (Shahids’) bodies to their relatives, exposes anew his attempt to improve his image in the Israeli street. Likewise, it exposes how Israel uses the Palestinian Martyrs’ bodies as an experimental field and as bargaining and marketing chips in order to achieve political and electoral gains, especially in light of the talk of a new prisoner exchange deal. This is alongside the many suspicions that the Israeli occupation stole organs from the Martyrs’ bodies.”
