Palestinian police arrested a suspect in the brutal killing of a gay Palestinian activist last week, as fear continues to grip LGBTQ Palestinians in Israel. Police spokesman Colonel Loay Irzekat announced October 7 that authorities arrested Palestinian Abu Murkhiyeh, who is suspected of killing gay Palestinian Ahmad Hacham Hamdi Abu Marakhia, 25, reported the BBC. Irzekat declined to state the motive or elaborate on the men’s relationship, citing authorities’ pending investigation. Marakhia was decapitated and brutally beaten in his family’s city, Hebron, a Palestinian city in the southern West Bank. Video captured his lifeless body being paraded through the city’s streets. The Associated Press reported his decapitated head and body were left near his family’s home late at night October 5. The video and photos of the incident went viral on social media late October 6.
