The Palestinian families of Palestinians who were killed by Israeli 
Occupation since the start of the third uprising last October, have 
released a campaign demanding Israel to bring back their sons’ bodies.

The campaign, founded by the families and The Popular Campaign to 
releasing the bodies of the martyrs, wrote:

“Given the importance of the hearing by the Israeli High Court on the 
18th of April 2016 to the petition that was submitted by the Addameer 
prisoners support and Human Rights Association and Adalah: The legal 
Center to Arab Minority Rights in Israel; held an expanded meeting 
attended by jurists, lawyers, legal expert, specialists and 
representatives of the Palestinian human rights organizations, as part 
of the preparation to the hearing within the legal, international, and 
popular aspects have agreed on the following:

1. We stress the importance of the hearing from the humanitarian and 
legal aspects, and must make every effort to have our just –right voice 
heard in the courtroom by focusing on the elements of the claim line 
that has been reviewed in the meeting.

2. To move the world public opinion by enlisting the legal institutions 
and foreign dignitaries to support the families of martyrs and the 
creation of international public opinion condemning the detention of the 
bodies which is contrary to international humanitarian law and 
international covenants.

3. The attendees call on the effectiveness of the organizers of the 
World Series for reading, which will take place in a number of European 
and Arab countries in the 16th of this month, to take up this issue 
during the event as part of the international campaign to recover the 
bodies of the martyrs.

4. The attendees call again to the Palestinian, Arab and foreign media 
to host legal experts Palestinians, Arabs and foreigners to take up this 
subject humanly and legally and to expose Israeli occupation both 
locally and internationally and embarrass it before the hearing on the 
said date.

5. We call for solidarity and passive popular media on the day of the 
hearing in order to demonstrate the importance of this case and its 
humanitarian dimensions.

Israel is currently detained about 15 Palestinians bodies, and has 
detained over 55 since the start of October, releasing some under 
conditions and detaining some for different periods of time.

There has been several reports that also confirmed Israel harvesting 
body parts from the bodies.
