Palestinian delegate to the UN accuses Israel of stealing terrorists’ organs

Headline: “Mansour accuses Israel of stealing the Martyrs’ organs during the current intifada”
     “Head of the Palestinian delegation to the UN, Riyad Mansour, sent a letter to the current president of the security council, British Ambassador Matthew Rycroft, in which he accused Israel of stealing the organs from the bodies of Martyrs (Shahids) who have died during the current intifada. Mansour wrote in his letter to Rycroft: ‘After [Israel] held onto the bodies of those killed by the occupation forces in October, and after medical examination, it turned out that the bodies were returned without corneas and other organs.’ He added: This verifies previous reports regarding the harvesting of organs.’”

Note: There is one case of organ theft in Israel’s history. In 2001, an Israeli investigative journalist exposed that from the years 1988 to 2000, doctors under chief pathologistYehuda Hiss at the Abu Kabir Institute of Forensic Medicine at times took body parts without permission from relatives, for research and transplants of skin and corneas. Most body parts were taken from Israeli Jews, but the theft also included body parts from Israeli Arabs, Israeli soldiers and Palestinian terrorists. There has been no documented case since then.
