GAZA, (PIC)– The occupation authorities transferred the remains of a Palestinian martyr, which was released on Thursday, to the Gaza Strip, after refusing to hand it to his family in the West Bank, despite that 36 years have passed since his death.

The occupation authorities released the remains of 91 Palestinian martyrs who had been killed during commando operations in the past years and whose bodies had been held in the so-called “Cemeteries of Numbers”, including 12 martyrs from the Gaza Strip.

The Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine confirmed, in a statement that the occupation refused to hand the body of martyr Ahmed Salman Zagharneh, one of the front’s military leaders, to his family in Al-Khalil and transferred it to the Gaza Strip, considering that as a violation to all international norms and conventions. The front demanded the occupation to give the body of the martyr to his family in Al-Khalil to be buried among his relatives.

The Martyr Zagharneh had been a fighter in the ranks of the Palestinian revolution, when he participated in the Lena Nabulsi operation, adopted by the Democratic Front on the 18 May 1976.

The operation was carried out to avenge the killing of school girl Lena Nabulsi, who was killed by the IOF while on her way home from school on 15 May 1976. The IOF soldiers kept shooting at her body even after she died. She was 15 years old at the time.

Five DFLP fighters crossed the borders from Jordan and clashed with IOF troops in a military base in the Jordan valley killing three soldiers and wounding six others. Three of the DFLP fighters were killed and two returned safely. The three who were killed were Ahmad Zagharneh, Hafez Abu Zant and Mashhour Arouri.
