Regarding the detainee, Al-Adra, the commission explained that he suffers from harsh conditions of detention inside the cells of the “Ohli Kedar” prison, where he is held in a cell that lacks the minimum necessities of human life. He is forced to sleep on a dirty and worn out mattress, which aggravated his health condition, and he began suffering severe pain in his back, and was transferred to the prison clinic. The doctor only gave him painkillers, and after long delays, he was given an injection.
