Our revenge will be the laughter of our children: 24hrs after the murder of Arafat Jaradat

Middle East

Saturday was a rough day for the West Bank. In Qusara, Jewish settlers fired on Palestinians, hitting one above the eye with a non-lethal round, and another in the chest with live ammunition. Both underwent surgery; one is in a coma. Around the same time this news hit social media, word began circulating that a young Palestinian father by the name of Arafat Jaradat had died in the Israeli Megiddo Prison, where he’d been held without charge for three months.

Saturday was a rough day for the West Bank. In Qusara, Jewish settlers fired on Palestinians, hitting one above the eye with a non-lethal round, and another in the chest with live ammunition. Both underwent surgery; one is in a coma. Around the same time this news hit social media, word began circulating that a young Palestinian father by the name of Arafat Jaradat had died in the Israeli Megiddo Prison, where he’d been held without charge for three months. Allegedly, he’d been involved in stone-throwing. Family claimed he was perfectly healthy when he was taken into custody, and all that’s come out of the initial autopsy is that heart attack was not the cause of death, contrary to the claims of the Prison Spokesperson.

Sources on the ground here say Megiddo is notorious for interrogations and torture and, indeed, Jaradat was interrogated Thursday – during which multiple medical evaluations occurred (the number I’ve heard is four). Why an interrogation would necessitate multiple medical examinations is anyone’s guess. No one here, however, appears to be guessing.
