A Palestine prisoner serving a life sentence in Israeli jails completed today 21 years behind bars, according to the Palestinian  prisoner society (PPS).

Kamil’s family said that he is suffering health and psychological conditions due to the harsh and painful conditions that he was subjected to in jail by Israeli authorities.
