(AA) – A Palestinian driver was found hanged late Monday in an Israeli bus in Jerusalem, eyewitnesses said.
According to the witnesses, the body of Hassan al-Ramouni, a 32-year-old Palestinian from East Jerusalem’s Al-Tur neighborhood, was found hanged in his bus run by Israeli transportation operator Egged in the industrial zone of Givat Shaul in West Jerusalem.
The body was moved to Hadassah Medical Center for the Israeli authorities to identify the cause of death.
Some Palestinian media outlets, however, released photos of al-Ramouni’s body showing signs of bruises and cuts in the back, abdomen and face, an Anadolu Agency correspondent reported.
Eyewitnesses said that a quarrel erupted between the deceased driver’s family and Israeli security forces after the Israeli police allegedly hinted the incident was suicide.
