Palestinian prisoner Mohammed Turkman was pronounced dead on Friday early morning, October 14, of wounds he sustained ahead of his arrest a month ago.
Earlier September, Israeli occupation forces arrested Mohammed and Ahmed Turkman, Jenin’s residents, after their car caught fire in the Jordan valley, without providing details about their health conditions.
Ahmed was transferred to hospital where he lost his right arm, according to the Palestinian Prisoners Club. The club confirmed that prisoner Ahmed suffered serious health conditions.
Turkman’s family announced in a statement that Ahmed’s mother had the opportunity to visit him a few days ago, but the Israeli occupation did not allow her to sit with him, as she only saw him behind glass partitions.
4650 Palestinians, including 32 women and 180 children, in addition to 743 administrative detainees are currently held in Israeli prisons.
