JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian prisoner who was assaulted by guards in an Israeli jail earlier in February has succumbed to his injuries, the man's brother said Tuesday.

Jihad Abd al-Rahman al-Taweel, a 47-year-old man from Jerusalem, died at Soroka Hospital in Beersheba late Monday, Sharif al-Taweel told Ma'an.

Jihad al-Taweel was hospitalized over two weeks ago after Israeli guards raided his ward and assaulted prisoners with pepper spray, a relative of the man said Friday.

Al-Taweel passed out during the assault, the relative said.

A week after al-Taweel was hospitalized, the Israeli prison service had asked his family to sign discharge papers, but the family refused to sign until they could ensure his situation had stabilized enough for him to be discharged.

The relative said that al-Taweel, who was a father of five, was serving a three-month sentence in Beersheba prison after Israeli police caught him driving a vehicle without a driver's license.

Grimly comic. Notice how the Israeli prison service was trying to shovel him out the door before he died. That way, they could have denied responsibility.

Another dies in silence.. Ignored by the media.. Savagely beaten to death... By a brutal, self centered society.. There will be no justice.. But the survivors will not forget.. Or forgve.. May God have mercy on the perpertrators... As the family may not..

Murdered by israeli police for driving without a liscence. While it may be bad to drive without a license I dont think an execution is appropriate to say the least. Actually the 3 months prison sentence for driving without a license is ridiculous too. I wonder if it had anything to do with he is a Palestinian instead of a Jewish israeli? May he rest in peace. Let us add this to the Amnesty International report which just came out.

A week after the Palestinian prisoner was hospitalized Israeli authorities asked his family to sign prison release papers. Once again, the criminal entity trying to pretend it is Jewish, tries to hide its crimes against humanity!
