The defense team of Sheikh Salah explained that, "from the moment he entered prison, he suffers from difficult detention conditions, which are preventing family visits, and not providing his belongings and needs such as books, newspapers, magazines, etc."

On February 10, 2020, the Israeli occupation court imposed the actual imprisonment on Sheikh Salah for 28 months in the "file of principles" while reducing the 11 months he spent in actual detention in the aforementioned file.
