Palestinian policemen in Jericho.

Arab youths maintained uniform silence over the weekend, following the news of the death of a prisoner that being held in a Palestinian Authority jail in Jericho on Friday.

Ayman Mohammad Sharif Samara, 40, died while being detained on charges of assault, Palestinian Authority attorney general Muhammad Abdul-Ghani al-Uweiwi told Ma’an.

Initial reports indicate that Samara, who is from Jenin, suffered from diabetes, hypertension and other medical conditions.

He was arrested on Friday and transferred to a nearby hospital, where he passed away, al-Uweiwi said.

No one stormed out to the streets to point out (using words and rocks) that Samara also suffered from intense jailing by PA officials.

But, hey, the PA attorney general denied that the prisoner was tortured or beaten during interrogations and said that an autopsy would be performed and the results made public once completed.

An investigation into his death has already begun, al-Uweiwi added.

Stay tuned.
