Long-serving Palestinian prisoner dies in Israeli jail

A Palestinian man named Walid Daqqa, who spent nearly four decades in Israeli prison, passed away from cancer at the age of 63.

Daqqa was convicted of involvement in the killing of an Israeli soldier but maintained his innocence. Despite calls for his release due to deteriorating health, Daqqa remained in custody until his death.

His family and human rights groups criticized the Israeli authorities for alleged medical neglect during his imprisonment. Amnesty International highlighted the need for adequate medical care for prisoners, stressing that Daqqa’s case exemplified systemic issues within the Israeli prison system.

Following Daqqa’s death, tensions rose as Israeli police reportedly disrupted a mourning tent set up in his hometown. The incident added to existing grievances over the treatment of Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails.

Daqqa’s passing brings attention to the broader issue of Palestinian detainees, with thousands still held in Israeli custody. It underscores the ongoing conflict and the challenges faced by Palestinian prisoners and their families.
