Israeli legal group says Palestinian Authority bears responsibility for death of 18-year-old.
By United with Israel Staff
The family of Tiran Fero, the Druze-Israel teen who was kidnapped from a hospital in Jenin last November and then died, filed a complaint with the International Criminal Court in The Hague, demanding the Palestinian Authority be investigated over its alleged involvement, Ynet reported.
The complaint was submitted by Shurat-HaDin-Israel Law Center, which works with Western intelligence agencies, law enforcement branches and a network of volunteer lawyers across the globe to file legal actions on behalf of terror victims.
According to Shurat HaDin, the PA bears criminal responsibility because the kidnappers were members of PA President Mahmoud Abbas’s ruling Fatah party.
Fero’s family says the boy was killed when the gunmen disconnected Tiran from medical equipment at Jenin’s Ibn Sina Hospital. The gunmen eventually released the body and Fero was laid to rest on what would have been his 18th birthday.
The victims’ father has charged that the gunmen kidnapped his son while he was still alive.
“We went to the hospital in Jenin,” the father, a resident of Daliyat al-Karmel in northern Israel, told the Hebrew-language N12 site at the time. “He was treated well, his condition improved, and then out of nowhere a lot of armed men came, I estimate about 20, who kidnapped him in front of my eyes.”
“They just went into the operating room and took him out. In other words, you can say – they murdered him. He was alive, in a serious but stable condition; as soon as they took him, it was over. Then we heard gunfire as if they were celebrating and proud of the deed.”
