The lawyer added that Qadri told her that he is in high spirits.

He is proud and thankful of the Palestinian people for standing by them and thanked the activists who demonstrated in front of the Nazareth court for them, the lawyer reiterated.

Qadri is being held in a 1x2 cell room that lacks all necessities and only contains a blanket, according to his lawyer.

She added all he asked for was a copy of the Holy Quran.

Qadri is still under investigation and his investigators are psychologically torturing him.

Meanwhile, The Commission for Detainees and Ex-Detainees Affairs reported that lawyer, Avigdor Feldman, visited Zakariye Zubeidi Wednesday afternoon and found that Zubeidi was assaulted during his re-arrest which resulted in a broken jaw, two broken ribs, bruises and scratches.

He was transferred to a hospital and only given painkillers.

Zubeidi explained to his lawyer that during the days they were free, they did not ask for help or food from anyone, out of concern for Palestinians and to keep them from any harm that might befall them.

They barely drank water and only ate fruits found in the orchards such as figs and prickly pear, Zubeidi told his lawyer.
