Palestinian prisoner dies in Israeli hospital


A Palestinian detainee died in an Israeli hospital on Tuesday, a Palestinian official said.

The head of the Prisoner Affairs Committee said Raed al-Jabari, 35, died in Israel's Soroka Medical Center after being moved there early Tuesday.

Issa Qaraqe, the former Minister of Prisoner Affairs, held Israel responsible for al-Jabari's life and demanded an investigation into the cause of his death.

Al-Jabari was being detained in Ofer jail before being moved to Eshel prison, and Qaraqe said he was "tortured while being transferred."

Abd al-Salam al-Jabari, the prisoner's father, blamed Israel for killing his son and demanded an immediate investigation.

Al-Jabari spoke to his wife and children on Sunday and was in a good physical condition, his father said. more
