Israel forces abduct more than 20 Palestinians in WB

Israeli forces have stormed several villages in the occupied West Bank, kidnapping at least 21 Palestinians. Israeli sources confirmed that 11 Palestinians were arrested in the village of Abwein in Ramallah and six others in Salwan near al-Quds (Jerusalem). The other Palestinians were nabbed in other locations. Israeli forces have been carrying out similar raids in the occupied territories on an almost daily basis. The raids have intensified since the deadly war on the Gaza Strip last year.”

Israel holds more than 7,000 Palestinians in its jails. Most of the prisoners are being held with no indictment. Human rights groups have criticized Israel for rampant rights abuses in jails and reports of mysterious deaths of inmates.”

Israeli forces routinely abduct Palestinians in the West Bank and put them behind bars based on the administrative detention policy. Administrative detention is a sort of imprisonment without trial or charge that allows Israel to incarcerate Palestinians for up to six months. The detention order can be renewed for indefinite periods of time.”
