The Israeli authorities transferred, on Sunday evening, the body of slain Jordanian man, Saâid Hayel Amro, 28, to the Jordanian side of the Allenby Border Terminal.
The Petra Jordanian News Agency quoted the spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates Sabah Rafei stating that the body of Amro, who was killed two days ago in Jerusalem, was moved to Jordan, and that his family will receive it after the authorities conduct all needed measures.
Later on, the body was moved to the Al-Karak Governmental Hospital.
Rafei added that the Jordanian authorities are closely following the investigation, in order to obtain details on the events that led to his fatal shooting by Israeli soldiers in occupied Jerusalem, this past Friday September, 16.
The soldiers fatally shot Amro in Bab al-âAmoud area, in Jerusalem, after he reportedly attempted to stab an officer.
It is worth mentioning that Amro was from the al-Mogheer village, near Al-Karak city, south of Jordan.
