A Palestinian man held in solitary confinement by Israel for two years is losing his ability to recall language and has speech impairments, a lawyer who visited him in jail said Sunday, reported Ma'an news Agency.
The lawyer for the Palestinian prisoners society said Dirar Abu Sisi, an engineer from Gaza, is suffering from a number of health problems in his isolation cell.
Israeli agents kidnapped Abu Sisi in February 2011 while traveling on a train in Ukraine and Israel later confirmed that it was holding him in a southern Israeli jail.
He was the only prisoner excluded from a May 2012 deal with Israeli authorities to end solitary confinement, according to prisoners rights group Addameer.
The deal, which included several terms to improve prisoners conditions, was made to end a mass hunger strike campaign launched by Palestinian prisoners.
The order to keep Abu Sisi in isolation was renewed for another six months on Nov. 1, 2012.Last Mod: 18 Şubat 2013, 11:08
