"We are facing an unprecedented Israeli escalation against our youth and children protesting the practices of the Israeli occupation and settlers, especially against the prisoners," Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas said on Tuesday, the official PA news agency Wafa reported.

Abbas said that Palestinian forensic evidence proved that prisoner Arafat Jaradat died as a result of torture in an Israeli jail, adding that the PA wouldn't adopt the theory "until an international commission of inquiry approves it."
