An informed source said the court extended the detention of Marouf for five days pending further investigation, and set April 11 a date for its next hearing.

The prisoner is an invalid unable to talk and suffering from injuries in his head and one of his legs in addition to a neurological disease and kidney inflammation. He was living in an orphanage house in Tulkarem when he was taken prisoner.

40 other prisoners with serious disabilities are being held in Israeli jails under bad incarceration conditions.

In another incident, an Israeli military court in the West Bank sentenced a Palestinian citizen named Ali Jabbar to 30 years in jail.

The Hebrew radio stated that Jabbar was charged with involvement in a resistance attack that happened 11 years ago in Netanya and killed about 30 Israelis.
