BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) – Tests suggest that a 3-month-old baby boy from the Ramallah area suffocated to death, Palestinian police said Sunday.
Ashraf Mutlaq, PR director of the Ramallah police department, told Ma'an that a woman brought her baby son to a clinic in the village of Arura north of Ramallah, where doctors pronounced his death.
Doctors noticed marks on the baby's neck and decided to notify a district attorney.
The attorney had the body sent to the Institute of Forensic Medicine at al-Quds University in Abu Dis, where coroners declared that the baby suffocated to death.
