Occupied Jerusalem, February 24 (QNA) - The number of Palestinians who have been detained by the Israeli occupation in the West Bank since October has risen to over 7, 210, according to a press statement of the Palestinian commission of prisoners and ex-prisoners affairs and the Palestinian prisoners club Saturday.

The statement highlighted that the number includes those who have been arrested from homes, military barricades, those who have surrendered themselves under pressure, as well as those who were held hostage.

Since Friday and Saturday morning, the Israeli occupation forces have arrested at least 22 Palestinians from the occupied West Bank, among them a journalist, two children and former prisoners, the statement read.

The arrest campaigns focused on Bethlehem Governorate, while the remaining campaigns were distributed to Hebron governorates, Ramallah, Tulkarm, Nablus and Jerusalem followed by wide intimidation, severe beatings, threats against detainees and their families, as well as large-scale vandalism on the Palestinian homes.

The Israeli occupation continues to perpetrate the crime of forced disappearance in Gaza after 141 days since the start of the aggression and genocide and refuses to give any information to international and Palestinian human rights institutions about the whereabouts of those detainees, including the martyrs of Gaza detainees.

The data related to the arrest campaigns includes those who remained captive and those who were later released. (QNA)
