Abu Sisi was the deputy director of the power plant in the Gaza Strip, who was abducted by the Mossad from the Ukraine, where he was visiting the family of his Ukrainian wife, on February 18, 2011. He has been held in solitary confinement since that time.

On July 9, PPS said that Abu Sisi, who is currently held in Eshel prison, is facing a policy of medical neglect as well as poor living conditions. He has been isolated in sections with criminal Israeli prisoners, and suffers from severe pains due to acute inflammation and bleeding in his teeth and he has not been provided with necessary treatment.

Abu Sisi also suffers from stomach ulcers, shortness of breath, kidney problems, high blood pressure and migraine, the PPS added.
