’Israel’ Harvesting Palestinian Martyrs’ Organs!
The Palestinian ambassador to the United Nations revealed that the apartheid "Israeli" regime is harvesting the organs of Palestinians martyred in the occupied territories.
Riyad Mansour said in a letter to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon on Wednesday that the bodies of the Palestinians killed by "Israel" are "returned with missing corneas and other organs, further confirming past reports about organ harvesting by the occupying power."
"A medical examination conducted on bodies of Palestinians returned after they were killed by the occupying power found that they were missing organs," Mansour wrote in the letter.
The Palestinian envoy further protested "Israel's" "persistent aggression against the Palestinian people" over the past month and Tel Aviv's "insistence on use of violent force and oppressive measures."
The issue of organ theft by "Israel" was first brought to the fore in a report published by Sweden's most highly-circulated daily Aftonbladet in 2009.
US daily The New York Times also said in an August 2014 report that transplant brokers in "Israel" have pocketed enormous sums of money. Based on the Times analysis of major organ trafficking cases since 2000, "Israelis" have played a ‘disproportionate role' in organ trafficking.
According to the latest figures by the Palestinian Health Ministry, at least 74 Palestinians have lost their lives at the hands of "Israeli "forces since the beginning of October.
The bodies of the Palestinian victims are most often held in "Israeli" custody for long periods of time before they are returned to relatives.
