The Palestinian prisoner who died in Megiddo Prison on Saturday did
not expire from a heart attack, as Israeli officials previously claimed,
but from torture, says a Palestinian doctor who was present for the
autopsy performed by an Israeli doctor Sunday.
Saber Aloul, chief pathologist of the Palestinian Authority, who
attended the autopsy in Israel, said marks on Arafat Jaradat's body
showed he had been tortured during his interrogation.
The autopsy, performed at the National Institute of Forensic Medicine, listed no
cause of death.
The Shin Bet security service denied Aloul was tortured. A Health
Ministry spokesperson said no exterior signs of injuries were discovered
during the medical examination, apart from resuscitation bruises and a
small abrasion on the right side of Jaradat's chest.
The examination was conducted by the institute's chief pathologist,
Yehuda Hiss, in the presence of Aloul and the head of the Health
Ministry's medical administration, Prof. Arnon Afek.
Prior to the autopsy, Israeli officials had said Jaradat likely died of
cardiac arrest, while Palestinians believed he died as a result of
No sign of heart failure was found during the examination, nor was any
other sign of illness, according to Aloul and Israeli officials.
Pathologists are now awaiting the results of microscopic and toxicology tests, which might take days or even weeks to receive.
Note that there are no conclusions yet. There is no basis for the 'Palestinian' doctor's statement. His claim has about as much credibility as the claim that Arafat was poisoned by Israel: Zero.
