West Bank: The number of Palestinians arrested by Israeli has risen to more than 7,210 since October 7

The Palestinian Prisoners' Affairs Authority and the Prisoners' Club said that the total number of arrests since October 7 has risen to more than 7,210 detainees.


They explained in a press statement today, Saturday, that this number of arrests includes those who were arrested from homes, through military checkpoints, those who were forced to surrender themselves under pressure, and those who were held hostage.


They pointed out that the Israeli forces arrested at least 22 citizens from the West Bank, including journalist Sami Al-Saei, two children, and former prisoners, from yesterday evening until this morning.


The arrests were concentrated in the Bethlehem governorate, while the rest of the arrests were distributed in the governorates of Hebron, Ramallah, Tulkarm, Nablus, and Jerusalem, and were accompanied by widespread acts of abuse, severe beatings, and threats against detainees and their families, in addition to widespread acts of sabotage and destruction of citizens’ homes.


It is noteworthy that Israel continues to carry out the crime of enforced disappearance against Gaza detainees 141 days after the aggression and genocide, as the occupation refuses to provide human rights institutions, including the competent international and Palestinian ones, with any information regarding their fate and places of detention to this day, including the martyrs among the Gaza detainees.


It is noteworthy that the data related to arrest cases includes those who were kept in detention by Israel and those who were later released.
