“The body of a man has been found on Bar Kochba Street in Tel Aviv,” police said in a statement

The body was found hanged at the corner of Bar Kochba and Dizengoff Streets, a busy nightlife and shopping district, by a passerby who notified the police, the officer in charge of the area said.

Israeli media quoted police as saying his death was an apparent suicide.

Sarsour, from the town of Qalqilya in the occupied West Bank, had entered Israel with a valid permit to work on a building site in Holon.

Israeli police claim the man was a murder suspect.

Overnight, Israeli occupation forces said they had arrested 11 Palestinians in raids across the West Bank, five of whom Israel accuses of “assisting” Sarsour.

The northern West Bank has suffered violent and deadly raids by Israeli occupation forces on a near daily basis in recent months.

Last week, two Palestinians were killed by Israeli occupation forces near Jenin.

According to the Palestinian health ministry, a total of 149 Palestinians have been killed since the start of 2022, including 34 from Jenin, the Palestinian news agency, Wafa, reported.
