RAMALLAH, Dec. 29 — Israeli occupation forces have arrested 6,059 Palestinians since the beginning of 2014, the Director of the Department of Statistics at the Palestinian Commission of Detainees and Ex-detainees, Abdul Nasser Farwaneh, said.
He added that the occupation forces targeted children, noting that the number of arrests have increased since three Jewish settlers went missing on June 12. “The average number of arrests stood at 505 a month or 17 cases daily,” Farwaneh noted.
The number of arrests, he said, increased by 56 percent compared to 2013, 57.5 percent when compared to 2012 and 83 percent in comparison with 2011, noting that all the detainees faced some sort of physical or psychological torture and humiliation.
Farwaneh urged all the media and human rights institutions to shed light on the daily arrest campaigns and violations against the Palestinians inside Israeli jails and urged that the victims be provided protection.
