The L. Greenberg National Institute of Forensic Medicine conducted an autopsy Wednesday on the body of 64-year-old Maissara Abu Hamdiyeh. Doctors confirmed that his death "resulted from complications of cancer and there were no signs of trauma."
Hamdiyeh was convicted in 2002 for a long string of terror-related offenses, including having admitted to having played a role in a terrorist bombing in Jerusalem in which several people were murdered. He also recruited new terrorists and taught them to create bombs, and created the suicide bomb belt used in an attempted bombing in a café.
Riots have been organized in PA controlled regions of Judea and Samaria following his death.
