The IDF spokesperson released a statement on Wednesday afternoon saying that Israeli pathologists from The Abu Kabir Forensics Institute in Tel Aviv would join pathologists from Jordan to investigate the cause of death of Palestinian Minister Ziad Abu Ein.
The army said that the Jordanian pathologists were on their way to begin the investigation. It was not clear whether the probe would take place in Israel or in the West Bank.
Abu-Ein died following an altercation with Israeli security forces on Wednesday in the West Bank. The 55-year-old minister was taking part in a protest against Israeli settlements when he was involved in the clashes.
According to IDF sources, the military initially believed that his death was the result of a heart attack.
