Israel withholds bodies of Palestinians killed in its prisons

Israeli forces arrested Taqatqa on 19 June from his home in the town of Beit Fajjar near the West Bank city of Bethlehem.

For the majority of his detention, he was held in the Russian Compound in Jerusalem, an Israeli detention center synonymous with the torture of Palestinian prisoners.

“There is serious concern that he was tortured and exposed to ill and/or degrading treatment while he was in detention,” the Palestinian Human Rights Organizations Council stated.

Israeli prison authorities then transferred Taqatqa to the al-Jalameh detention center in the northern West Bank and then finally to Nitzan prison inside Israel.

It is unclear what caused Taqatqa’s death, as Israel is refusing to release his body.
