  Ministry Of Health: "More Than 1,000 Palestinians Kidnapped Since June 12"

author Friday July 11, 2014 11:52author by Saed Bannoura - 

    Head of the Censure Department at the Palestinian Ministry Of
    Detainees, Abdul-Nasser Ferwana, has stated that Israeli soldiers
    kidnapped more than 1,000 Palestinians since the three Israeli
    settlers went missing on June 12, 2014.

Ferwana said that the latest arrests against Palestinians in the West 
Bank brought the number of those currently imprisoned by Israel to more 
than 6,200.

He added that Israel never stopped kidnapping Palestinians, as the army 
has been kidnapping approximately 35 each day, and that the vast 
majority of arrests take place in the West Bank, while 350 Palestinians 
have been kidnapped in occupied Jerusalem and historic Palestine.

The Palestinian researcher also said that the army kidnapped nearly 200 
children, 13 democratically elected legislators, including the head of 
the Palestinian Legislative Council (PLC), Dr. Aziz Dweik, as well as 
two former ministers, bringing the number of imprisoned legislators to 
24, in addition to two ministers of former government.

The army also kidnapped 60 former prisoners who were previously released 
under the "Shalit Prisoner Swap Agreement", bringing the number of 
detainees released under the deal, and then rearrested, to more than 80, 
in direct violation of previously signed agreements.

Israel is also threatening to re-impose their terms, in effect 
threatening to imprison them for life, or dozens of years, in direct 
violation of the prisoner-swap deal.

The Palestinian official stated that more than 180 of the recently 
kidnapped Palestinians have been detained under arbitrary Administrative 
Detention order, without charge or trial.

He called for keeping the issue of all political prisoners as a 
priority, and to expose Israel's violations, especially since the 
arrests are ongoing and even escalating, while the Israeli Prison 
Authority is imposing sanctions against the detainees, and continuously 
punishing them.
