More than 350 bodies from Gaza examined in Israel since start of war in hunt for hostages – report

Israel has examined more than 350 bodies taken from Gaza at the Abu Kabir Forensic Institute since the start of the war, the Kan public broadcaster reports.

The bodies are transferred to Israel from Gaza in order to determine whether or not any of the 136 hostages still held by Hamas in Gaza were among them, the report says.

Once the forensic examinations are completed, the bodies of the deceased Palestinians are then returned to Gaza for burial, the report adds.

The IDF did not immediately comment on the report and has not commented on similar reports in the past.
