RAMALLAH, (PIC)– A Palestinian human rights center concerned in prisoners’ issues accused the occupation authorities of trading with organs of a Palestinian martyr who passed away in Ashkelon prison in 1980.

Palestinian Prisoners Society (PPS) said in a press statement on Tuesday that Israel, after 30 years, still denies the existence of the body of Palestinian martyr Anas Dawla.

It asserted that Dawla had been killed in the jails and that the Israeli authorities have been hiding his body and did not even allow burying him.

PPS has also revealed its belief that the Israeli side has been selling the organs of the martyr.

The occupation Supreme Court has issued a decision providing for rejecting the request to hand over Dawla’s body to his family, under the pretext that it does not exist. The PPS considers this procedure as a crime.

The Palestinian human rights society demanded the formation of an international commission to investigate the series of crimes committed by the Israeli authorities against Palestinian prisoners, and to prosecute the Israeli leaders responsible for those crimes.

For its part, Palestinian Foundation of Health Work Committees urged for an international inquiry to uncover the circumstances of the death of captive Dawla in Ashkelon detention center, in light of recently raised investigations and media reports stating that the occupation soldiers and other Israeli bodies have been conducting experiments on the Palestinian martyrs’ bodies and selling their organs.

The Foundation called for intensifying Palestinian and international efforts to free all the prisoners from Israeli jails, and to release the 240 bodies of Palestinian and Arab martyrs that are still held by the occupation authorities.
