Thousands of people attended the funeral, on Monday, of two Palestinians whose remains were returned, by Israel, a day earlier.
Ma’an News Agency reports that, on Sunday, relatives gathered at the Tarqumia checkpoint, southwest of Hebron, late Sunday to receive the remains of Ayat al-Akhras, from Duheisha refugee camp, and Daoud Abu Swayy, from the village of Artas.

Al-Akhras, 18, died in 2002 after she detonated an explosive belt outside a supermarket in West Jerusalem, killing herself, 17-year-old Rachel Levy, and a security guard.

Abu Swayy, 46, died after detonating an explosive belt in West Jerusalem outside of the David Citadel Hotel. Three people were injured in the blast.

They were both buried at the al-Shuhada cemetery, in Artas.
