Ramallah 6-3-2024 WAFA – Palestinian institutions revealed on Monday that Israel has arrested more than 9,000 citizens, including 300 women and 635 minors, from the occupied West Bank, including East Jerusalem, since last October 7.

Prisoners’ institutions (the Prisoners’ Affairs Authority, the Prisoners’ Club, and the Addameer Prisoner Care and Human Rights Foundation) explained in their statement on Monday that the occupation and its colonialists escalated their attacks in the West Bank, including Jerusalem, which led to the martyrdom of 521 citizens and the injury of about 5,000.

She pointed out that at least 18 prisoners whose identities were revealed have been martyred in occupation prisons since October 7, and Israel is holding 16 bodies of martyred detainees.

The institutions reported that among the detainees were 300 women, 635 minors, and 80 journalists, of whom 50 remained in detention, and 12 journalists from Gaza were under enforced disappearance, according to the statement.

She said: After October 7, administrative detention orders (without charge) amounted to more than 5,900 orders, including new orders and renewal orders, including orders against children and women. The arrests are accompanied by abuse, severe beatings, threats to detainees and their families, and sabotage and destruction of citizens’ homes. Vehicles, money, and gold jewelry were looted, according to the statement.

The institutions added that during the arrest campaigns, the occupation forces carried out “field executions” of people, including family members of detainees, referring to what was reported by Israeli media about the killing of dozens of detainees from Gaza in Israeli detention camps.
