Israel has arrested 7,225 Palestinians in the West Bank since October

Ramallah, Feb 26 (Prensa Latina) Israel's security forces have arrested 7,225 Palestinians in the West Bank since the onset of the new cycle of violence on October 7, the Prisoners Club reported.

The institution said in a statement on Sunday that the campaign of detentions is unprecedented, ensuring that it is part of the strategy of aggression against the Palestinian people and the ongoing genocide in the Gaza Strip.

In early February, the Club condemned the upsurge in Israeli Police and Army crimes against detainees.

“Among the most prominent crimes are torture, ill-treatment, severe beatings, threats to shoot them directly, on-the-spot interrogations, threats of rape, as well as the use of police dogs and citizens as human shields,” it warned.

The Club underscored that since October 7, the military issued over 2,850 administrative warrants, a procedure used to arrest Palestinians for renewable intervals usually ranging from three to six months on the basis of undisclosed evidence, which even the defendants’ lawyers are barred from seeing.
