Arafat’s mysterious death : the ex-leader poisoned ?

Posted on Updated on

UnknownThe ex-leader of Palestinians, Yasser Arafat was probably poisoned, according to an investigation which was carried out by Swiss scientists after the exhumation of his body in November 2012.

Thanks to their first test results, elevated traces of polonium were found in Arafat’s bones, at least 18 times higher than usual. A copy of the investigation was obtained exclusively by the Al-Jazeera TV Network.

Even if  this is not an absolute proof he died that way in 2004, doubts remain about an eventual conspiracy to get rid of the ex-leader of the Palestinians.

Arafat’s widow, is certain that the main suspect who is implied in her husband’s mysterious death, is Israel. She’s not the only one to have this certainty because many Palestinians suspect Israel of poisoning Yasser Arafat. We can imagine that Israel’s anxiety about such accusations is going to grow in the next days.

If it turns out to be true, the question is : who might have poisoned Yasser Arafat and why ?
