The lawyer of the Wadi Hilweh Information Center Mohammed Mahmoud explained that the Israeli occupation policies are demanding to transfer the body for autopsy, while the family refuses this and demands the burial of the body.
He added that there is no legal reason for delaying body delivery, and this is an attempt to impose conditions on the funeral.
The young Sharif was shot by the Israeli occupation forces during the clash irrupted that erupted at Al-Aqsa Mosque, on the third Friday of Ramadan, during the clash Israeli forces fired rubber bullets and gas canisters, which caused tens of injuries.
Videos documented the Israeli forces storming the mosque from the Mughrabi Gate, and shooting worshipers, then the Sharif’s injury and complete loss of consciousness.
