A Palestinian detainee has been held in isolation, in Israeli jails, for over two years, said the Detainees and Ex-Detainees Commission on Tuesday.

The Commission said, according to WAFA, that 23-year-old Yousef al-Shinnawi, from Haifa, in Israel, has been held in isolation, in Meggido prison, since March 2017, in very difficult living conditions.

The Commission said, in a statement, that Israeli Prison Services isolated Shinnawi from the rest of the political prisoners, after claiming that he was a danger to the security of Israel. He is serving a life sentence plus 20 years, on charges of resistance.

Shinnawi was put in isolation two months after his arrest. The isolation order is for six months and has been continuously renewed, ever since.

The current isolation order ends in September.
