      PA Minister: Autopsy Proved Torture in Prisoner Death


      The Palestinian Authority Minister of Prisoners Affairs, Issa Qaraqe, has repeated PA claims that Israel tortured a terrorist prisoner to death. Qaraqe claimed that an autopsy performed in Israel in the presence of a PA doctor proved torture, despite the fact that the experts performing the autopsy said otherwise.

      Qaraqe said bruising and fractured bones on prisoner Arafat Jaradat’s chest and back prove he was tortured. Israeli experts have said the fractures and bruises were likely caused by resuscitation efforts after Jaradat’s heart attack.
