RAMALLAH, Feb. 24 (Xinhua) — Palestinian Minister of Prisoners Affairs Eissa Qaraqe’ said on Sunday that autopsy revealed that Palestinian prisoner Arafat Jaradat died of torture.
“Traces of severe torture appeared on Jaradat’s body: neck, face and backbone,” Qaraqe’ told reporters in a news conference held in the West Bank city of Ramallah.
Jaradat, 30, died in an Israeli prison on Saturday after he was detained in one of the almost-daily Israeli army raids in the West Bank since less than a week.
Initial Israeli media reports cited sources suggesting that Jaradat died of a heart attack. Qaraeq’ denied this claims, describing it ad “untrue Israeli claim.”
“There was no signs of a heart attack or stroke,” Qaraqe’ said.
