Hezbollah on Sunday handed the remains of Israeli soldiers killed in the 2006 war with the Jewish state to the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) for delivery to Israel.
Hezbollah security official Wafik Safa announced the release of the soldiers' remains at Naqoura upon the arrival of Nissim Nasser, a Lebanese man released from jail by Israel on Sunday.
"We today are handing over some of the remains of a number of Israeli soldiers who were killed in the July war and who the Israeli army left in Lebanon," Safa said.
The remains, held inside a box, were placed in an ICRC vehicle.
