The Israeli Authorities are still holding the body of Younis Radayda, who was shot and killed on Thursday allegedly after he drove into a military base, and said that his body will be handed to the Palestinians Sunday, the Palestine News Network (PNN) has reported.Radayda was driving a bulldozer when he was shot; Israel claims he deliberately drove into a military base close to the Qalandia terminal, north of occupied East Jerusalem.
His family, from the Al-Obeydiyya town, near Bethlehem, said that their son must have lost control over his bulldozer, and that Israel is fabricating the incident to make it appear as a deliberate attack.
Activists in Al-Obeydiyya said that the family was preparing to hold the burial ceremony for Younis today, Friday October 18, 2013, but Israel decided to keep the body at the Abu Kabeer Forensic Center.
The Israeli authorities later said that the body of Radayda would be handed to his family this coming Sunday.
