Jerusalem, ALRAY - The so-called Israeli supreme court is to hold a new trial session for the Mentally-ill Palestinian detainee Ahmad Manasra to consider an appeal submitted against his continued isolation.


His lawyer, Khaled Zabarqa, confirmed that Manasra is scheduled to appear in court on Monday at 3:30 p.m.


According to the Palestinian Prisoners Club, the Israeli court will consider a petition filed by Mansara's defence team to appeal against his continued solitary confinement.


In March, an Israeli court upheld a 6-month solitary confinement order against Manasra.


Despite his critical mental health, he has been held in solitary confinement in Israeli occupation prisons since October 2021.


The Israeli occupation army detained Mansara, 20, in 2015 in horrific circumstances as a 13-year-old child when he was with his cousin, Hassan Manasra, who was shot dead after allegedly stabbing two Israeli colonial settlers in the illegal "Pisgat Ze'ev" settlement in the occupied West Bank.


Manasra was himself attacked by a mob of Israeli colonial settlers and run over by a colonial settler, leaving him with fractures to his skull and internal bleeding.


The Israeli courts acknowledged that Manasra did not take part in the alleged stabbing but still charged him with "attempted murder".


In 2016, an Israeli court sentenced Mansara to 12 years in prison but his sentence was later reduced to nine years and a half.


The Israeli occupation is holding around 4,900 Palestinian detainees, including 34 women and nearly 160 children, in inhumane conditions and harsh conditions, according to Palestinian prisoners' rights organisations.
