PA government: Imprisoned terrorist who died of cancer was victim of Israeli policy of “deliberate medical negligence”

“The [PA] government condemned – during its weekly meeting… led by [PA Prime Minister] Muhammad Shtayyeh – the policy of deliberate medical negligence that caused the death of prisoner Bassam Al-Sayeh (i.e., terrorist, involved in murder of 2)… It held the occupation authorities fully responsible for the deterioration in prisoner Bassam Al-Sayeh’s health and his death as a Martyr.”


Bassam Al-Sayeh – Palestinian terrorist who authorized and raised funds for the shooting attack by a Hamas terror cell in which Israelis Naama and Eitam Henkin (also an American citizen) were murdered on Oct. 1, 2015, in front of their four children, aged 9, 7, 4, and 4 months. Al-Sayeh was arrested on Oct. 8, 2015, and died in prison of cancer – a pre-existing condition from before his arrest – on Sept. 8, 2019.
