Ramallah (QNN)- Lawyers for Justice said that it has documented 20
political arrests by the Palestinian Authority following the recent
uprising.

In a press release, the watchdog said that the arrests targeted activists
and former prisoners over social media posts or taking part in protests in
solidarity with Jerusalem and Gaza.

It added that some detainees were tortured, beaten, and humiliated, which
“constitutes an obvious breach of the Palestinian and international laws”.

The detainees were also denied their right to meet their lawyers.

The PA’s campaign of arrests is taking place at the same time as Israeli
“law and order” operation within the 1948 territories, where hundreds of
Palestinian citizens of ‘Israel’ have been rounded up.
