A Palestinian prisoner, held by Israel in Beersheba (Beâ€™er as-Sabeâ€™) prison, died on Friday, due to the lack of adequate medical treatment, the media department of the Palestinian Detaineesâ€™ Committee has reported.
The Committee stated that Yasser Hamed Eshteyya, 36, from Tal village, southwest of the northern West Bank city of Nablus, died at the Beâ€™er as-Sabeâ€™ (Beersheba) Israeli prison, due to the lack of adequate medical treatment.
Media sources said that â€śHamed was serving a life term in Israeli jails after he was convicted of a criminal charge in 2009.”
Israeli sources said Eshteyya was found dead in his cell, and that the Prison Authority â€śinitiated an investigation into his death.â€ť
His death just came two days after a political prisoner, identified as Fares Baroud, 51, from Shatiâ€™ refugee camp in Gaza, died due to the lack of medical treatment.
