Report: Palestinian terror fighter killed in Jenin masterminded abduction of Israeli’s body

A senior Palestinian terror group fighter killed today in predawn clashes with Israeli troops in Jenin was reportedly one of the masterminds behind the recent kidnapping of the body of Israeli teenager Tiran Fero from a hospital in the West Bank city.

Mohammed Ayman Saadi, a field commander for Palestinian Islamic Jihad, was present during last week’s abduction of the 17-year-old’s body, the Ynet news site reports.

He was involved in the act’s planning and in the decision where to hide the body, and directed the negotiations with the Palestinian Authority to release it, according to the report. Those talks, coupled with Israeli threats, led to the body being released some 30 hours later.
