There are 16 detainees who use wheelchairs and crutches, 80 detainees who are diabetic, two bind detainees, 40 detainees who were shot prior to their arrest and still have fragments in their bodies, in addition to 14 detainees who are permanently at the Al Ramla Prison Hospital which lacks the basic equipments.
