DAMASCUS, SYRIA (6:57 A.M)- According to ‘Addameer’, a Palestinian Prisoners Rights Group, over 1,300 Palestinians were detained in January and February, of this year alone.

Amongst the detained were 274 children, with them were also women and journalists.

Those arrested included (according to the report): “381 individuals from Jerusalem; 233 from the Ramallah and al-Bireh district and 20 from the Salfit district in the central West Bank; 140 from the Hebron district and 118 from the Bethlehem district in the southern West Bank; 133 from the Jenin district, 107 from the Nablus district, 59 from the Tulkarem district, and 54 from the Qalqiliya district in the northern West Bank; 21 from the Jericho district, and 30 from the Gaza Strip.”

At the end of February it was recorded that, 500 plus Palestinians were them being held in ‘Administrative Detention’, without a charge.

The conviction rate in Israeli military courts is 99.74 and because of this, most human rights lawyers and organisations have withdrawn efforts to prolong cases in an attempt to fight the system.

As of February the 28th, over 6,500 Palestinian political prisoners were reported to be in Israeli military jails. 350 children also currently suffer in Israeli prisons.

Since 1967, Israel has murdered 213 Palestinian detainees.
