The 91 names of martyrs include seven Palestinians killed during a heroic commando operation in Tel Aviv in 1975.

Israeli political sources reported that premier Benjamin Netanyahu decided to release, those Palestinian bodies as a gesture of goodwill from his side towards Mahmoud Abbas to urge him to resume the peace talks, and noted that the two sides exchanged letters in this regard.

The cemeteries of numbers as they are known are different yards where the bodies of Palestinians and Arabs, who were mostly killed by Israel in different incidents, are buried improperly inside tight and shallow graves with no tombstones except metal plates with numbers.
