The Shin Bet said that a security prisoner that passed away, apparently from cardiac arrest, at Megiddo Prison was Arafat Jaradat who was arrested last Monday under suspicion of stone throwing during operation Pillar of Defense and confessed.
A medical examination revealed that Jaradat suffered from back pains and had previously sustained a rubber bullet injury to the leg and a gas grenade to the stomach. During his interrogation he was seen multiple times by a doctor and no deterioration in his health was noted. Immediately after his death his family was informed and a police investigation commenced.
