An 18-year-old Israeli Druze boy was kidnapped from a hospital and then murdered by Arab terrorists.
The boy, named Tiran Pero, was critically injured in a car accident on Tuesday night and transported to a hospital in Palestinian Authority-controlled Jenin. Armed gunmen, apparently members of the Islamic Jihad, entered the hospital that night, disconnected the teen’s life support, and then kidnapped him as he died.
The Palestinian Authority was able to retrieve the body and placed it in an ambulance to hand over to the IDF, as the deceased teen was an Israeli citizen. But another group of terrorists hijacked the ambulance and again stole the body.
“This is murder. It’s a terrorist attack. He was sedated and on life support; he was alive,” the boy’s uncle, Edri Fero, said. “They were shooting in the air and shouting in Arabic… nobody dared to stop them. They disconnected him from the machines and tossed him into a car.”
Palestinian sources suggested that the terrorists took Tiran because they suspected he was an Israeli soldier. The body is now believed to be in the Jenin Refugee Camp.
