Hamas says it’s willing to negotiate for soldiers’ bodies

Hamas is willing to hold negotiations for the remains of deceased IDF soldiers which it says it possesses, one of the group’s top officials Muhammad Nazzal told Turkey’s Anatolia news agency late Wednesday, according to a report on Walla News.

Nazzal is believed to be referring to 2nd Lt. Hadar Goldin and Staff Sgt. Oron Shaul, both killed in battle in Gaza. Some of Goldin’s remains were retrieved and brought back to Israel, and a funeral was held for him. Shaul, meanwhile, was declared a soldier whose place of burial is unknown.
