The body of an Israeli Druze young man that was seized by Palestinian gunmen in Jenin has been transferred to his family, the Israeli military said on Thursday, adding that nothing had been given in return.

"We didn't negotiate in any way with the gunmen that had the body," an IDF spokesperson said during a briefing. "We didn't give anything in return. I think at some point they understood that the consequences for this happening would have been very hard for the Jenin economy."
