IDF Readying for Funeral of Prisoner Who Died of Cancer

IDF forces in Hevron are on alert for the funeral of the Palestinian Arab prisoner who succumbed to cancer in an Israeli prison.

The autopsy performed in Israel showed that the prisoner died of the complications of the disease and not of any medical omissions, but the PA accused Israel of preventing the prisoner from receiving medical care.

The PA has been encouraging the ongoing protests which are expected to increase in intensity after the funeral is over.
