Palestinian detainee dies inside Israeli prison


RAMALLAH, PALESTINOW.COM — The Palestinian Prisoners’ Society (PPS) has reported that a Palestinian detainee died in an Israeli detention facility, Friday.

The PPS said the detainee Wisam Abdul-Majid Shalalda, 28, from Sa’ir town, northeast of the southern West Bank city of Hebron, has died in Ayalon Israeli prison, in Ramla.

The PPS added that the circumstances of his death remain unknown, while members of Shalalda’s family said they were only informed that he had a stroke, and were asked to head to Abu Kabeer Israeli Forensic Institute.

The PPS said the detainee, a married father of four children, was taken prisoner in 2015, and was sentenced to seven years in prison.

It held Israel responsible for his death, especially due to the extremely bad living conditions the detainees face, the lack of proper medical treatment, and added that the “silence of the international community encourages Israel to continue and escalate its violations.”

It is worth mentioning that Shalalda is the fourth detainee who died in Israeli prisons, or after being detained, since the beginning of this year.
