Hamas terrorist found dead in Israeli prison psychiatric ward
A 31-year-old Muslim terrorist was found dead on Tuesday morning in Nitzan prison psychiatric ward.
Prison authorities say Hamas terrorist Nassar Majed Taqatqa was arrested for activities against the State of Israel one month ago and was kept in the psychiatric ward of the prison.
Intensive care staff that rushed to the scene carried out unsuccessful CPR and he was declared dead by the prison doctor.
All Israeli security prisons for terrorists were closed to visitors following the death.
IDF forces arrested the Muslim terrorist a month ago after raiding his house in the Arab village of Beit Fajjar, south of Bethlehem. He was transferred to the Kishon detention center for interrogation, before being transferred to the Nitzan mental health facility for observation.
