Autopsy shows detained Palestinian was beaten by Israeli forces

MEMO | September 24, 2018

A Palestinian who died after Israeli occupation forces arrested him at his home was indeed assaulted, autopsy results have revealed, reported AFP on Sunday.

Mohammed Khatib, 24, died after being taken into custody during a pre-dawn raid on Beit Rima village in the occupied West Bank last Tuesday.

At the time, the family said occupation forces had “beaten [Mohammed] into an unconscious state” while still in the house; two hours after he was taken, his family was informed of their son’s death.

The latest findings, published by the Palestinian Committee of Prisoners’ Affairs, contradict claims made by Israeli authorities that there had been no violence by soldiers during or after the arrest.

The committee stated that “preliminary results of the autopsy clearly indicate the martyr was assaulted and beaten”, adding that the body “had bruises on the torso and the right thigh, as well as on other (body) parts”.

“The brutal manner of his arrest had affected the functioning of his organs, which was the main cause of his death”, the statement added.

“The autopsy was carried out at Abu Kabir forensic institute near Tel Aviv in the presence of the head of the Palestinian Institute of Forensic Medicine, Rayan al-Ali”, noted AFP.

  1. Sad as it is for the Palestinian people, this is “just another day in Palestine” It happens all the time. Rachell Corrie, an American teenager, was run over by an Israeli Tank, and even the USA took no action over it.
    Killing of foreigners(including Palestinians) is what Israel does, in cold blood. No apologies, and No mercy, at all.
