The seized body of an Israeli man killed in a car accident in Jenin was received by the Israeli occupation forces.
The Israeli occupation received at Salem checkpoint, at dawn Thursday, the body of Israeli Tiran Fero, who was killed in a traffic accident in Jenin in the occupied West Bank, as per Palestinian sources, following negotiations with Palestinian Resistance fighters in coordination with the Palestinian Authority.
On their part, Israeli occupation forces said in a statement that "as a result of the efforts of the security forces and in coordination with the Palestinian authorities, the body of an Israeli man killed in a car accident in Jenin on Tuesday was transferred to his family in Israel."
According to the Israeli newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth, the Resistance fighters captured the body of Fero, 18, after they stopped an ambulance belonging to the Palestinian Red Crescent that was on its way to deliver it to the occupation.
The newspaper had reported that officials in the occupation army are making attempts with leaders in the Palestinian Authority to have the body returned.
Israeli media reported that the traffic accident resulted in the injury of two Israelis in Jenin and described their injuries as serious, before announcing the death of one of them at a later time.
Against the backdrop of the incident, Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades in Jenin announced raising the state of readiness and mobilization among the Resistance fighters to counter any attempts by the occupation army to storm the Jenin camp - which was likely.
Local sources added that the Resistance closed the entrances to the camp, deploying rubber tires, barbed wire, and cement blocks, noting that Israeli reconnaissance hovered over the area.
In a related context, security sources said the Israeli occupation authorities closed Al-Jalama and Salem military checkpoints west of Jenin until further notice.
According to the sources, the Israeli occupation prevented the movement of goods and commodities, the movement of Palestinian workers into the '48 occupied territories, and the entry of the Palestinians from the '48 occupied territories into Jenin Governorate until further notice.
