On Thursday, the Supreme Court of Israeli occupation issued a decision to freeze the administrative detention order given against the Fasfos prisoner, who faces a dangerous health condition inside the Israeli “Barzilai” hospital.

In a statement, the commission explained that the decision to freeze does not mean its cancellation, but rather it disclaims the responsibility of the occupation prisons administration and the “Shin Bet” intelligence for the fate and life of the Fasfos prisoner and transferring him to an “unofficial prisoner” in the hospital. He remains under the guard of “hospital security” instead of guarding the warders. 

According to the hospital rules, family members and relatives can visit him as any patient, but they cannot transport him anywhere.

He explained that the two prisoners, Muhammad Al-Amoudi and Hosni Issa, escalated their strike in Raymond prison by refraining from drinking water, which led to the deterioration of their health, and they were transferred to the prison clinic.
