RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- The Israeli authorities returned the body of a killed Palestinian, on Tuesday evening, near the Ofer detention center in western Ramallah City in the occupied central West Bank.

A Ma’an reporter confirmed that Israel returned the body of Riyad Shamasneh, from the Qatanna village northwest of Jerusalem, to his family.

Shamasneh was shot and killed by Israeli police following a high-speed chase, on predawn Saturday, near Damascus Gate in the Old City of Jerusalem.

Shamasneh’s body was taken to the Forensic Medicine Department at the Al-Quds University for an autopsy.

Funeral procession for Shamasneh is planned to take place on Wednesday afternoon in Qatanna.
