Yigal Amir, the assassin of former prime minister Yitzhak Rabin, made a complaint in Petah Tikva's District Court on Monday that he and his brother Hagi, are the only prisoners in Israel held for long periods in solitary confinement.

"Even security prisoners, Hamas prisoners, [northern branch of the Islamic Movement head] Raed Salah and Marwan Barghouti are not kept in solitary confinement," said Amir in court.
