He accused the Israeli authorities of not offering Sofan the opportunity for proper treatment.
Al-Ashqar added that the Israel Prison Services continues preventing Sofan's release for treatment and denies him the right to: "At least die among his relatives instead of dying in prison."
Regarding the Israeli court, which rejected the release of very sick prisoner Walid Dagga, he said: "The court did not look into the possibility to release him or not, but whether it had jurisdiction to deal with his case or not."
Al-Ashqar explained that Dagga was returned to Al-Ramlah Prison under unfounded claims of suffering from a strange illness, noting that "he is facing a slow death."
He described Dagga's detention conditions as "very difficult," pointing out that the Israeli government, mainly National Security Minister Itamar Ben-Gvir: "Directly incited the court against him and asked it not to look into his case."
