Palestinian prisoner dies in Israeli jail

 

RAMALLAH, Wednesday, April 22, 2020 (WAFA) – A Palestinian prisoner serving an 8-year sentence for resisting the occupation has died in an Israeli jail this morning, according to the Palestinian Prisoner Society (PPS).

It said in a statement that Nour Jaber Barghouti, 23, from Aboud town near Ramallah who has been in prison for four years, fell unconscious in the bathroom in the Naqab prison in the south of Israel.

It said it took the prison administration more than half an hour to provide Barghouti with medical assistance only after prisoners started to shout for assistance.

However, the prisoner was later pronounced dead, said the PPS, holding the Israel Prisons Service responsible for his death for not providing him with immediate assistance, but rather stalling which led to his death.
