Palestinian institutions concerned with the affairs of prisoners in the occupation prisons said that the occupation authorities arrested 3,100 Palestinians, including children and women, last May.
This came in a joint statement by the institutions of the Prisoners and Ex-Prisoners Affairs Commission (affiliated with the Palestine Liberation Organization), the Palestinian Prisoner Club, the Addameer Foundation for Prisoner Care and Human Rights, and the Wadi Hilweh Information Center (all non-governmental).
The statement said that the Israeli occupation authorities arrested 3,100 Palestinians, including 42 women and 471 children, from various regions as part of random and organized arrest campaigns.
She stated that the highest cases of arrests were in the occupied territories in 1948, which amounted to about two thousand arrests, including 291 children, and indicated that the release of most of the detainees was conditional, and that indictments were directed against more than 170 of them.
She added that about 1,100 arrests were recorded in the West Bank, including 180 boys and girls, and 42 women and girls. He was also arrested in Jerusalem 677.
The prisoners’ institutions monitored the continued pursuit of candidates for the Legislative Council elections (before canceling them), as the occupation arrested 6 candidates from the “Al-Quds Our Time” list (close to Hamas), as well as two former members of the Legislative Council.
Palestinian institutions documented the issuance of 200 administrative detention orders, including 116 new ones, during the past month.
Administrative detention is imprisonment by an Israeli military order without an indictment, for a period of 6 months, subject to extension.
