Italian Mother and Father of Activist enter Gaza

Islam Times reports that the Arrigoni family was warmly welcomed by the people of Palestine. A number of Palestinian officials were also present in the welcoming ceremony. They entered Gaza with the purpose of retrieving the body of their murdered son.

Before this, Ismail Haniyeh, the elected prime minister of Palestine and Sami Abu Zuhri, the speaker of the Islamic resistance movement Hamas, spoke with the mother of Vittorio Arrigoni on the phone. They expressed their pain to the grieving family and promised that they would find and punish those who were responsible for his murder.

Muhammad Awad, the foreign minister of the elected government in Palestine, stated in a news conference yesterday that the body of Vittorio Arrigoni will be handed over to his family during an official ceremony attended by a representative of the Italian consulate.

Vittorio Arrigoni was kidnapped last Friday by an unknown group in Gaza. His body was later found in the northern district of the Gaza Strip.
