The Palestinian Prisoners Club quoted Manasra's lawyer Khaled Zabarqa, that Manasra's solitary confinement was extended "despite his serious health and psychological condition."

"Twenty-year-old Manasra has been in confinement for more than a year, and is being held today in the Ashkelon prison," Zabarqa said.

Manasra was arrested by the occupation forces on 12 October 2015 while he was accompanied by his cousin Hassan, who the Israeli forces shot dead. Manasra was 13 years old at the time of his arrest.
