According to the commission, one of those prisoners, for examples, has suffered severe psychological problems, including serious hallucinations and insomnia.
In a statement, head of the commission Issa Qaraqea held the Israeli government and its prison service fully responsible for the serious health conditions that have afflicted hundreds of prisoners who went on hunger strike for 41 days recently to demand basic rights.
