Bulk2OCCUPIED JERUSALEM (PNIC):-Following a petition at the Israeli high court, the Israeli government said it would notify relatives of an army soldier who is held by Hamas 72 hours ahead of returning any Palestinian bodies in order to receive their objection.

According to the court verdict, the government will inform the family of Hadar Goldin, an Israeli captive being held by Hamas in the Gaza Strip, before it returns the bodies of Palestinians to their families for burial, the state attorney’s office said Thursday.

The development came after the family of soldier Hadar Goldin petitioned the high court of justice Tuesday to prevent the authorities from giving up the body of Hamas-affiliated prisoner Aziz Owaisat for burial.

During the summer 2014 Gaza war, Hamas captured two Israeli soldiers, Goldin and Oron Shaul, who are claimed by Israel to have been killed in action. Their families have accused the government of not doing enough to bring their loved ones home.
