Palestinian
Dies In Al-Maskobiyya Israeli Interrogation Facility
July 22, 2021
------------------------------

A young Palestinian man died, on Wednesday evening, while being held at the
al-Maskobiyya detention center and interrogation facility, in Jerusalem.
His family said he was tortured while under interrogation.

Hasan Abed-Rabbo, the media advisor of the Palestinian Detainees’
Committee, stated that Abdo Yousef Khatib Tamimi, 43, from Shu’fat refugee
camp, died while being held at the interrogation center, and added that the
young man was taken prisoner, Sunday, due to a traffic citation and because
he was driving his car without a driver’s license,

Abed-Rabbo held Israel fully responsible for his death, especially since
the interrogation facility did not reveal sufficient information regarding
his death, except for claiming that he suffered a heart attack.

The Palestinian was a married father of four children, and his wife is also
pregnant.

His cousin said that Abdo was beaten up by the soldiers and added that the
army abducted seven of his relatives for protesting his death.

He stated that the family received information from Palestinians who were
detained in the same facility, informing them that Abdo was tortured and
beaten up by the soldiers during interrogation.

The Tamimi family demanded an autopsy that would be attended by a
Palestinian doctor and added that the young man was healthy and that he was
tortured, including being subjected to electric shocks.
