Israel returns body of child shot on Gaza border

The Israeli occupation authorities on Tuesday returned the body of a Palestinian child who was shot by Israeli forces three months ago near the border east of the southern Gaza Strip city of Rafah.

The body of Ishaq Shtewi, 16, was handed over to his family and al-Mezan Center for Human Rights through Beit Hanoun (Erez) crossing.

Shtewi died on 14 April after he succumbed to gunshot wounds he sustained earlier in the same month when he was arrested along with other Palestinian boys on the border.

The Israeli occupation authorities are currently holding the bodies of 260 Palestinian martyrs, four of whom are under the age of 18.
