Ghawadra underwent surgery, during which his left hand was amputated, following suffering severe and deep burns in 90% of his body.
The Palestinian Prisoner’s Society (PPS) indicated that Ghawadra’s killing has risen the number of Palestinian prisoners who died in Israeli custody since 1967 to 232.
