Palestinian prisoner dies in Israeli jail, PA official says

Feb. 23, 2013 4:34 P.M. (Updated: Feb. 25, 2013 10:07 A.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian prisoner held in Israel's Megido Prison died on Saturday, a Palestinian Authority official said.

PA Minister of Detainees Issa Qaraqe identified the victim as Arafat Jaradat, 30, from the Hebron village of Sair.

Israeli media had earlier reported that Jaradat suffered a cardiac arrest and prison staff tried to revive him to no avail.

Qaraqe told Ma'an that he holds the Israeli government responsible for Jaradat's death and demanded an immediate inquiry into the circumstances behind his death.

Jaradat was arrested this week, Qaraqe added, and was not involved in ongoing hunger strike action by Palestinian prisoners.

A spokeswoman for the Israel Prison Service did not immediately return calls seeking comment.
