More Trauma Likely in Gaza Reburial Plan

This summer, when Israel plans to evacuate thousands of settlers from Gaza, authorities are planning to dig up the remains of 46 Israelis buried in Gush Katif and re-inter them in cemeteries inside Israel. Eliezer Orbach, the head of Gush Katif’s religious council, who has served as the caretaker of the cemetery since it was established in 1987, said he has attended the funerals of more young people than old, in part because of Palestinian attacks. Eight of those buried there were babies or children, 4 were soldiers in their early 20s when they died, and another dozen or so were in their 30s and 40s. The oldest was around 50.
