Health Ministry Statement on the Autopsy on Arafat Jaradat - Two ribs were broken, which may indicate resuscitation attempts

[Dr. Aaron Lerner - IMRA: So better not to attempt to resuscitate?]

Health Ministry Statement on the Autopsy on Arafat Jaradat

(Communicated by the Health Ministry Spokesman)

This afternoon (Sunday, 24 February 2013), at the National Center for
Forensic Medicine, an autopsy was performed on the body of Arafat Jaradat by
Prof. Yehuda Hiss, in the presence of Prof. Arnon Afek, Director of the
Health Administration at the Ministry of Health, and Palestinian pathologist
Dr. Saber Aloul.

During the autopsy, no signs of external trauma were found apart from those
pertaining to resuscitation [attempts] and a small graze on the right side
of his chest.

No evidence of disease was found during the autopsy.

Two internal hemorrhages were detected, one on the shoulder and one on the
right side of the chest.

Two ribs were broken, which may indicate resuscitation attempts.

The initial findings cannot determine the cause of death.

At this stage, until microscopic and toxicology reports are in, the cause of
death cannot be tied to the autopsy findings.
