Defense Minister Naftali Bennett has directed the IDF to prepare for a total stoppage of the handover of dead terrorists’ bodies to the Palestinians – subject to confirmation by the security cabinet. The chief of staff approves. This step is part of a wider campaign for boosting Israel’s deterrence against Palestinian terror. The Jordanian embassy Wednesday asked Israel to release the body of Sami Abu Ayad, a convicted terrorist, who died of terminal cancer in an Israeli hospital. Ayad held dual Jordanian citizenship. Amman also asks for details of his medical treatment.
