The report mentioned the arrest of Sayed Hussein Mahfouz (18 years) from Al-Markh on January 1, 2022. Meanwhile, the imprisonment of 5 children pending investigation was extended. The children were arrested on October 31 and November 1, 2021. They are: Mohammad Jaafar Al-Kuwaiti (15 years), Moqtada Jaafar Al-Kuwaiti (15 years), Montazar Jaafar Al-Kuwaiti (14 years), Ahmad Fadel Ahmad Hubail (15 years) and Mohammad Abdulzahraa Mansour (15 years).

He frequently feels dizziness in his head, causing him a loss of balance to walk, as well as some other health problems. The prison administration is not responding to demands to transfer him to hospital and present him to a specialized doctor.
