Eng404SALFIT (PNIC):-Israeli forces raided the family home of a Palestinian Elias Saleh Yassin, 22, who was shot and killed on Monday after he allegedly attempted to stab Israeli soldiers, in the Bidya village, west of the northern occupied West Bank district of Salfit, searched it and interrogated family members, on Tuesday.

Israeli forces had shot and killed Yassin, on Monday, after he allegedly attempted to stab Israeli soldiers in the Barkan industrial area, near the illegal Israeli settlement of Ariel near Salfit.

Locals said that Israeli forces raided the Yassins home, thoroughly searched it and interrogated family members.

Sources added that Israeli forces informed them that their son's body, which has been withheld by the Israeli army since the alleged stabbing attempt, will be released in the next few days.

The reason for the raid remained unknown.

Israel has a policy of withholding the bodies of Palestinians killed during or after attacks carried out against Israelis; Israel has long had "cemeteries for the enemy dead," also referred to as "cemeteries of numbers," where the bodies of these Palestinians are held in nameless graves marked by numbers.

Israel dramatically increased its policy of withholding bodies since the beginning of a wave of unrest across the occupied Palestinian territory in October 2015, although it has scaled back on the policy in recent months.
