Walid Daqqa, who was convicted of involvement in the 1986 kidnapping and murder of an IDF soldier, died in April. The state admitted the decision marked a policy shift of not withholding the return of the bodies of Israeli civilian terrorists for bargaining

Mmmm, that's good Moral High Ground!

From Wikipedia, "After Daqqa's death on 9 April 2024, Israeli police forcefully dispersed visitors who attended his funeral."

All I could get was the start of the strong in Haaretz, as there's registration,etc. But if you check out Daqqa you'll find there's quite a bit online.
