13-year-old Palestinian boy found hanged to death in Jerusalem-area town

JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- A teenage Palestinian boy was found dead in a tent in the town of al-Eizariya in the central occupied West Bank’s Jerusalem district, according to Palestinian police.

Police spokesman Luay Irzeiqat told Ma'an that police were notified of a dead body found in a tent in the town, and that officers from the nearby Abu Dis police station rushed to the place to find the body of a 13-year-old boy lying on the ground inside a tent which served as a children’s playroom. 

The victim was identified as Ali Salih al-Umour. His brother told police officers that he found al-Umour hanged inside the tent. 

Police said traces of a rope were clear on the victim's neck. The Palestinian prosecution decided to keep the body until a forensic doctor examines the body to try and determine the cause of death.
