Israel reportedly returns the bodies of 80 Palestinians who were killed in Gaza after taking them from morgues and graves to check there were no hostages among them, according to sources in the Hamas-run Gaza health ministry.
The bodies, which had been transported to Israel, were returned to Hamas authorities who buried them in a mass grave in Gaza, the sources claim.
Following inspection of the corpses, they were taken through the Kerem Shalom crossing between Israel and the Gaza Strip. They were then transported in a truck to the mass grave, the sources say.
An AFP photographer saw a digger lowering the blue body bags into a trench in Rafah, on the south end of the territory.
The IDF did not immediately comment on the report.
