Autopsy of Jerusalem teen set for Monday

Sept. 7, 2014 10:20 P.M. (Updated: Sept. 8, 2014 4:45 P.M.)
JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- The autopsy of a Palestinian teenager who succumbed to his wounds Sunday after being shot by Israeli forces days before will take place on Monday, the teen's family lawyer told Ma'an.

Minem Thabit said the autopsy for 16-year-old Muhammad Abd al-Majid Sunuqrut would be carried out at Abu Kabir forensic center.

The autopsy is particularly important because Israeli police claim Sunuqrut was shot in the leg, though medics have said the youth died from complications after a rubber-coated steel bullet hit his skull, Thabit said.

He added that the autopsy would be done under the supervision of Saber al-Aloul, the director of the Palestinian Institute for Forensic Science.

Muhammad was shot last Monday by Israeli forces as he was talking on the phone in Wadi al-Joz in what his father at the time told Ma'an was an "unprovoked attack."

The youth suffered a fractured skull as a result of the attack and at the time underwent surgery at Hadassah Medical Center in Jerusalem in order to stop bleeding and remove fragments caused by the impact of the bullet.
