HEBRON (Ma'an) -- A young Palestinian man was found dead on the outskirts of Hebron in the southern West Bank on Saturday night, family members and security sources told Ma'an.
Hebron security sources say the body of 19-year-old Muhammad Ibrahim Deib Zuhour was found in an outskirt of Hebron known as Sakka. The victim was a resident of the village of Beit Kahil northwest of Hebron, they added.
The victim's body sustained major bruises and burns, and was subsequently taken to the Institute of Forensic Medicine at al-Quds University in Abu Dis on the order of the Hebron district attorney.
Family members told Ma'an that the victim received a phone call Friday afternoon requesting that he donate blood for an emergency case. He left his home after the phone call and never came back.
On Saturday night the family identified the victim's body at Hebron hospital.
Hebron police and general prosecution have launched an investigation into the case.
