In the occupied West Bank city of Ramallah, thousands gathered for the burial of human rights activist Suha Jarrar, who was found dead at her home Sunday at the age of 31. She reportedly died of a heart attack, though the cause has not yet been confirmed. Suha Jarrar’s mother, Palestinian lawmaker Khalida Jarrar, is currently in an Israeli prison on what rights groups say are politically motivated grounds, and was not permitted to attend her daughter’s funeral. Suha Jarrar worked for Palestinian rights organization Al-Haq, focusing on the environmental impacts of the Israeli occupation.
