Israel transferred to Palestinian authorities on Thursday the bodies of dozens of Palestinian fighters.

The Palestinians had been buried, some of them for decades, in a desolate Israeli military cemetery in the occupied West Bank.

The remains of 80 Palestinians were handed over to President Mahmoud Abbas's Palestinian Authority in the West Bank and 11 bodies were slated for transfer to the Gaza Strip, controlled by Hamas.

The Palestinian Authority and Hamas both planned official memorial ceremonies later in the day. Palestinians are regarded as heroes in a struggle for occupied lands.
