6500 Palestinians, Including 200 Children, Currently Held By Israel


West Bank – Abdul-Nasser Ferwana, head of the Palestinian Detainees Committee, and a member of its follow-up committee in the Gaza Strip, stated that the ongoing arbitrary kidnappings, carried out by the Israeli army, especially since the second half of this year, have led to increasing the number of Palestinian detainees to more than 6500.

Ferwana said the arrests are largely carried out as “acts of revenge” and retaliation against a civilian population, and that most of the kidnapped Palestinians have nothing to do with acts “that could endanger the security of Israel.”
