PA falsely accuses Israel of "cold blooded execution" after prisoner dies in hospital
Official PA TV program Palestine This Morning
Official PA TV reporter: “The [Jenin] district is in a state of mourning and anticipating receiving the body of Martyr Daoud Zubeidi (i.e., terrorist, shot at Israeli soldiers in Jenin on May 13, 2022, and died of his wounds two days later), who was executed in cold blood after he was wounded and was in hospital (see note below regarding PA libel on medical abuse of Palestinian prisoners -Ed.). Everyone in the Jenin district is convinced that the Israeli occupation forces deliberately assassinated him, especially given that reports came in yesterday morning [May 15, 2022] saying that he was in good health and there was a chance of his recovery, but in the afternoon a report came in on his death as a Martyr.”
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."
