Israeli hospitals work with the government to "harm" and "execute" Palestinian prisoners, broadcasts PA TV

Official PA TV, special broadcast for Nakba Day (see note below), hosting released prisoner Nidal Naghnaghiya– PMW was unable to determine the nature of his crimes



Official PA TV reporter: “Nidal, what is your message to the occupation, especially given that there are reports that the occupation army executed Daoud Zubeidi (i.e., terrorist, shot at Israeli soldiers in Jenin on May 13, 2022, and died of his wounds two days later) on his sick bed in Haifa at Rambam Hospital (see note below regarding PA libel on medical abuse of Palestinian prisoners -Ed.). Was Martyr Daoud Zubeidi directly executed?”


Released prisoner Nidal Naghnaghiya: “We think this is logical, and it is logical that Rambam Hospital was a partner in a plot with the Israeli Security Agency to harm this fighting family.




Nakba Day - Palestinians commemorate Nakba Day on May 15, the day after the establishment of Israel. On May 15, 1948, combined forces from Egypt, Jordan, Syria and Iraq joined local Arab forces in an attempt to eradicate the newly established State of Israel. The Nakba (Arabic = catastrophe) refers to the establishment of Israel, and the subsequent defeat in the war, including the killing and displacement of Arab civilians that occurred during the war.


Libel on medical abuse of Palestinian prisoners - the PA claims that Israel abuses Palestinian prisoners, through medical neglect, medical experiments, and by intentionally infecting them with diseases. However, the International Red Cross regularly visits these prisoners and has not documented or accused Israel of any of these claims. Likewise, lists of demands occasionally issued by the prisoners during hunger strikes - such as during one in 2011 - include no demands relating to these claims. PMW has documented prisoners talking about how they "lack nothing" in the prisons, and that "the worst thing about Israeli prison" is riding in a prison vehicle that has no padding on the seat. When PMW contacted the Israeli Ministry of Health in 2007 regarding PA claims of medical experiments on prisoners, the ministry responded: "Clinical testing on prisoners in prison was never approved, never performed, and is most certainly not taking place at present."
