The family of detainee Raed Abu Hammad, from Al Ezariyya town in east Jerusalem, demanded a full investigation into the death of their son who died last Friday at an Israeli detention facility.

Following his death, Israel moved the body to a forensic center in Tel Aviv but, so far, did not release the findings.

His family said that he was not sick and that he was an athlete and a Karate trainer holding a black belt.

The family demanded a thorough investigation to reveal the real causes of his death.
The Arabs48 news website reported that Hammad was buried on Sunday, and that thousands of Palestinians, including Minister of Detainees, Isa Qaraqe’, participated in the funeral.

They chanted slogans against the ongoing Israeli violations against the detainees, and the illegal Israeli polices of torture in addition to depriving the detainees from their rights to receive proper medical care.

Hammad was kidnapped by the Israeli army on February, 26, 2004, and was accused of stabbing an Israeli soldier. He was sentenced to 10 years and additional 5 years on parole.

Shaheed Basam abu Rahma’s funeral in Bil’in 17 4 09:

“This Friday some 15 Israelis and 15 internationals joined a few dozen Palestinians in their weekly demo in Bil’in. The demonstration’s theme was Palestinian prisoners’ day, and the demo was headed by people carrying posters demanding the release of Palestinians held by the Israeli occupation forces. As usual, upon reaching the fence the demo was met with stun and gas grenades. The strong wind blew in the direction of the demonstrators and spread the gas among them, so only a small group of demonstrators managed to stay close to the fence. This, however, only encouraged the soldiers to keep shooting relatively large amounts of gas and other ammunition. The first victim was a French demonstrator superficially wounded in her face by a rebound shrapnel. Shortly after, a soldier shot an extended range gas projectile from a few meters away directly at Bassem Abu Rahme who was standing at the fence, knocked him over, left a gaping hole in the middle of his torso, and put him into respiratory distress and shock. Since no ambulance was at the scene, Bassem (a.k.a. Phil, aged 30) was evacuated in a private car toward Ramallah. Some demonstrators stayed by the fence for a while, but as the last of them left the scene, the news of Bassem’s death reached the village.”
