Occupied Palestine (QNN)- Human rights watchdogs stated that Israeli forces arrested 467 Palestinian citizens, including 135 children and ten women, last October.
The watchdogs (The Committee of Detainees and Former Detainees’ Affairs, The Palestinian Prisoners Association, Addameer, and Wadi Hilweh Information Center) added that the arrests increased the total number of Palestinians in Israeli prisons to nearly 4650 until the end of October. The number includes 34 women, 160 children, and nearly 500 administrative detainees.
They added that the Israeli authorities issued 106 administrative detention orders in October, including 49 new orders and 57 renewals.
It also said that the Israeli authorities use administrative detention as a tool to prevent any kind of protests, calling for the rights of the Palestinian people.
The report noted that the occupation state is using suspension orders of administrative detention in some cases to relieve the Israeli Prison Service (IPS) and the Shin Bet of their responsibility for the lives of hunger-striking detainees.
