The Palestinian Authority for Prisoners and Ex-Detainees Affairs accused the Israeli authorities of murdering the Palestinian prisoner, Thaer Samih Abu Assab, in the Negev prison, who has been serving a 25-year prison sentence since 2005.
The Prisoners' Affairs Authority said in a statement, "The assassination of prisoner Abu Assab (38 years old) from Qalqilya Governorate in the West Bank, in the Negev Desert Prison.
The Palestinian martyr has been detained since May 27, 2005, and has been sentenced to 25 years in prison.
He was the sixth martyr to be assassinated in prisons of the occupation after October 7.”
The Prisoners' Affairs Authority confirmed that "the occupation is carrying out systematic assassinations against our prisoners, with premeditation," holding all international forces supporting Israel responsible for the continuation of these crimes against the Palestinian people and the ongoing aggression against the Gaza Strip.
