Prominent Palestinian human rights campaigner dies

Published: 12.18.13, 12:54 / Israel News

Leading Palestinian human rights campaigner Dr. Eyad Sarraj, who dealt with the mental health damage caused by political oppression and challenged both Israeli and Palestinian abuses, died after battling leukemia, his family said Wednesday. He was 69.


Trained in Egypt and Britain, Sarraj became the Gaza Strip's first psychiatrist and established a community mental health program in 1990. The program focused on the most vulnerable groups, such as children and victims of torture and other abuses, and served as a foundation for his human rights work. (AP)
