Palestinian tortured to death in Israel jail buried

Palestinian detainee Raed al-Jabari, 35, who allegedly died after being tortured while in Israeli prison custody, was laid to rest on Friday in Hebron.

Palestinian mourners marched from al-Hussein Bin Ali mosque in central Hebron voicing their demands that Israeli leaders be held accountable in the International Criminal Court.

Al-Jabari was detained by Israeli forces on July 26 when he turned himself in after running into several Israeli settlers with his car in Gush Etzion.

He told Israeli forces that it was an accident, and a court decided to release him on bail.

However, he later died in custody after what Palestinian officials described as torture. more
