Young Palestinian prisoner dies in Israeli jail


NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Palestinian prisoner Hasan Turabi, 22, from a Nablus-area village died Tuesday morning at Afula Medical Center in northern Israel, according to local Palestinian sources.

Sources from the village of Sarra in the northern West Bank told Ma'an that the Israeli prison service officially notified Turabi’s family of his death.

Turabi, according to lawyer Hiba Masalha of the Palestinian ministry of prisoners affairs, was suffering from leukemia. She warned recently that he was in real danger after a blood vessel burst.

She added that Turabi was vomiting blood and was moved to the intensive care unit where medics found that he had blood clots in the neck, the chest and the abdomen.

Israeli forces had transferred Turabi from Megiddo prison to Afula Medical Center for medical treatment.

Palestinian minister of prisoners' affairs Issa Qaraqe responded to the report saying that Israeli prison service is responsible for the death of Turabi and accusing them of "negligence." more
