The Prevalence of Palestinian Imprisonment in Israel: An Exploration of Factors

Source link

Thousands of Palestinians are held in Israeli jails and the number is increasing daily.

Hamas has always made the freedom of Palestinian prisoners one of the conditions for the release of Israeli and foreign captives.

And it’s one of the terms of the truce that is set to begin on Friday.

An estimated 7,800 Palestinians are held in Israeli jails, and dozens more are arrested in the occupied West Bank every day.

Israel’s use of administrative detention means it can imprison Palestinians without charging them – a practice human rights groups say violates international law.
