Note: this biography may be incomplete or out of date. Extension/update suggestions are welcome.

Mahmud al-Mughrabi (1960-1985) was killed by the Israeli air force in its 1 October 1985 raid on Tunis. Born in Jerusalem, he had already been in Israeli detention 12 times by the age of 16 and was one of the first who dared to speak in public about the methods of interrogation of Palestinian detainees used by the General Security Services in Israel. He then gave his permission to being publicly identified as an informant for the Sunday Times expose of Israeli torture in Jun 1977. In 1984, he managed to escape to Jordan after years of increasingly marginal existence under steadily deteriorating conditions of military occupation.
