Abu Sisi disappeared in February 2011 while traveling on a train in Ukraine
and Israel later announced that it was holding him in a southern Israeli jail.
RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- A Gaza engineer kidnapped by Israel in the Ukraine last year is the last remaining prisoner held in solitary confinement, after the hunger-strike deal sought to end the practice, his lawyer said Tuesday.

Dirar Abu Sisi is still being held in an isolation cell in Ashkelon prison, while all others have been returned to normal wards, lawyer Karim Karim Ajwah said, noting his case was "kept secret in an unusual way."

Abu Sisi disappeared in February 2011 while traveling on a train in Ukraine and Israel later announced that it was holding him in a southern Israeli jail.

A former head of the Gaza power plant, he is accused of working with Hamas to improve its rocket technologies.

Abu Sisi threatened to refuse food and water if promises to move him from solitary confinement are not fulfilled.

He asked his lawyer to contact Egypt to intervene in his case, after the country brokered a deal last Tuesday between Israeli authorities and Palestinian prisoners to end a mass hunger strike in Israeli jails.

The agreement included a commitment to move isolated prisoners to normal cells within 72 hours, according to prison representatives.

When all those Palestinian prisoners were released in the exchange for one Israeli soldier it wasn't long before many of them were re-arrested. Which leads one to the obvious conclusion that "it ain't over 'til the fat lady sings'. But, Israel should be aware that there ARE people in the world who are watching their actions and if these actions don't improve eventually they will earn some form of punishment.
