The Ahrar Center for Detainees Studies and Human Rights reported that 
Israeli soldiers kidnapped, since the beginning of this month until 
Tuesday December 18, 173 Palestinians in different parts of the occupied 
West Bank.

The center said that most of the arrests took place in Hebron district, 
in the southern part of the West Bank, as the soldiers kidnapped 45 
Palestinians, in addition to 32 in Nablus, 24 in Bethlehem, 22 in 
Ramallah, 10 in Qalqilia, 9 in Tulkarem, 7 in Tubas and 4 in Jericho.

The Center further reported that Israeli soldiers have escalated their 
assaults and violations against nonviolent protests held in solidarity 
with hunger striking detainees in Israeli prisons, especially protests 
in solidarity with Ayman Sharawna and Samer Al-Eesawy.

It said that Israel is trying to silence and stop all protests that 
highlight the suffering of Palestinian political prisoners held by the 
occupation, and is ongoing with its escalation against the detainees and 
their families.

The Prisoners Support and Human Rights Association (Ad-Dameer) reported 
that by the beginning of this month, the number of Palestinians held by 
Israel arrived to 4656.

Ad-Dameer said that there are 178 detainees, including 7 elected members 
of parliament, are currently held under illegal Administrative Detention 
orders without charges, and that Israel is currently holding captive 11 
women, 177 children, and 13 legislators.

There are 191 detainees who are from historic Palestine (the 1948 
territory), and 439 from the Gaza Strip.

Also, there are 529 detainees serving life sentences, 456 detainees 
serving a sentence above 20 years, 23 who have been imprisoned for more 
than 25 years, 72 for more than 20 years, and 111 detainees who have 
been imprisoned before the first Oslo Agreement was signed in 1993.
