"As a result of the efforts of the security forces and in coordination with the Palestinian authorities, the body of an Israeli man killed in a car accident in Jenin on Tuesday was transferred to his family in Israel," the Israeli army said in a statement.

His body was taken by gunmen from the hospital after the accident, according to his family.

Israeli Prime Minister Yair Lapid had on Wednesday threatened strong reprisals against those who had taken the body.

Israeli Defence Minister Benny Gantz thanked the Palestinian Authority on Twitter for "this humanitarian gesture that comes after a miserable and inhumane act".
