Palestinian Terror Prisoner Dies in Hospital, IPS Initiates Investigation

By Yoni Weiss

A Palestinian terror prisoner, identified as Khaled Jamal Shawish, has died in Kaplan Hospital, as confirmed by the Israel Prison Service (IPS) on Wednesday.

The 53-year-old, from Jenin, was serving 10 life sentences for his involvement in a series of deadly terror attacks during the early 2000s. Shawish was transferred from Nafha Prison to Kaplan Hospital, where he died shortly thereafter. The specific reason for his hospitalization remains undisclosed, citing health privacy concerns.

The IPS has initiated an investigation into the circumstances surrounding Shawish’s death, a standard procedure in such incidents. The nature of his medical condition leading to hospitalization and subsequent demise is expected to be thoroughly examined. The 10 life sentences handed to Shawish underscore the severity of his involvement in acts of terrorism, and his passing raises questions about the broader context of security and health conditions within the prison system.
