RAMALLAH, (PIC)– The popular movement for the support of prisoners and Palestinian rights renewed its accusation against Israeli soldiers of torturing and killing a Palestinian Christian young man called Khader Tarzi before harvesting his body parts in February 1988.

The movement had obtained a videotape illustrating in detail how the young man was hunted, beaten and tied to the front of an army jeep by Israeli occupation soldiers of the Givati Brigades near a house in the neighborhood of Al-Zeitoun in Gaza.

The videotape showed the stitched-up body of the young man with stitches running from his chin to his lower abdomen as well as in his hands and feet.

According to eyewitnesses at the time, the soldiers crucified Tarzi to their jeep after he asked for the help of Jesus Christ.

Israel, after pressures from human rights organizations, had agreed then to hold a military trial against the soldiers who tortured the Palestinian Christian to death, but the court acquitted them of killing the victim.
