Abdul-Wahab, from Abwain village, near the central West Bank city of Ramallah, spent 55 days at the Ofer Israeli interrogation and detention facility.

His lawyer, Tareq Barghout, filed a motion for his release for medical treatment especially since his condition deteriorated during his imprisonment as he did not receive any medical attention.

The case of Abdul-Wahab is one of hundreds of cases of ailing Palestinian detainees who are deprived of their basic right to medical treatment.

Dozens of detainees are in solitary confinement, some of them are seriously ill and need urgent medical attention.

There are 201 Palestinian detainees who died in Israeli prisons, some of them died due to being shot and arrested despite their injuries, others died of extreme torture during interrogation, medical negligence, while several detainees were shot and killed by the arresting soldiers, the Palestinian prisoner society reported.
