The bodies were among 23 handed over by Israeli authorities on Friday night, 17 to the Chevron area.
The bodies were carried on the shoulders of their families to the al-Hussein Ibn Ali mosque in city center, where funeral prayers took place. Thousands collectively performed the prayer inside the adjacent al-Hussein football stadium and across city streets.
The thousands of mourners attending the funeral shouted slogans as the terrorists’ bodies were carried through the streets.
Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon said on Nov. 5 that bodies would be handed over conditionally, with Israeli authorities often demanding that the bodies be buried immediately following their handover and that funerals be limited in attendance. MAAN NEWS
