PA official visits family of Palestinian police officer who led lynching of two Israeli reservists

“Prisoners’ Affairs Authority Director and PA Parliament Member Issa Karake said the situation in the occupation prisons has become unbearable as a result of the severe measures Israel is vindictively and intentionally implementing against the prisoners according to official decisions... Karake made his statements during his visit to the family of prisoner Raed Al-Sheikh from the Gaza Strip, whose family lives in the village of Aqab in the Ramallah district, who was sentenced to life and has been in jail for 15 years.”

Note: Raed Al-Sheikh – A Palestinian police officer from Gaza sentenced to life imprisonment for his leading role in the Ramallah lynching on Oct. 12, 2000, in which a Palestinian mob brutally murdered two Israeli reservists who had accidentally entered Ramallah, and mutilated their bodies.
