Palestinian man held in Israeli custody dies in yet unclear circumstances

A 40-year-old Palestinian man who has been held in Israel for two months has died today in an Israeli hospital in yet unclear circumstances as Palestinian prisoners’ advocacy groups held Israel responsible for his death.

The Palestinian Prisoner Society (PPS) said in a statement that Mousa Abu Mahameed, from the Bethlehem-area village of Beit Tamar, died this morning at Asaf Harofeh hospital in occupied territories.


It said Mahameed, whose family says had neurological problems before his arrest, was detained two months ago while he was in occupied Jerusalem for not holding an entry permit.


Reports said he was admitted to the hospital one month ago after an unexplained deterioration in his health and that his family was not aware of his health situation until recently.


The PPS said medical negligence practiced by the Israel Prison Services against Palestinian detainees and prisoners was responsible for Mahameed's death, holding the Israeli government responsible for the death.
