    The Israeli military invaded various parts of the West Bank
    Wednesday night, abducting 26 Palestinians from their homes. Since
    the beginning of October, more than 650 Palestinians have been
    abducted and imprisoned, according to prisoner rights groups.

The military invaded Nablus and surrounding villages after midnight 
Wednesday night, abducting eight. In addition, nine Palestinians were 
abducted in raids in the Hebron area.

In Bethlehem, five young men were abducted, and four were snatched from 
their beds in Ramallah. None of those abducted have been identified at 
this point.

The Palestinian Authority's Committee for Prisoner Affairs reported this 
week that a record 650 Palestinians have been abducted by Israeli troops 
in the past three weeks -- this is the highest number in a single month 
since June 2014, when protests filled the streets of Jerusalem following 
the burning to death of a young Palestinian boy by right-wing Israelis.

Israeli police report that they have detained over 200 Palestinians 
since October 1st. But Palestinian groups put the number much higher. 
Many of those imprisoned have been detained without charges or trial, 
and have had no opportunity to see a lawyer to represent them.

According to the Prisoners' Committee, most of those imprisoned in the 
past month are 20 years old are younger, and many of them are minors who 
are being held illegally in adult facilities.

On Wednesday, a 30-year old Palestinian prisoner died in custody when he 
was denied medical treatment <http://www.imemc.org/article/73389> after 
suffering a stroke. It is still unknown what caused the young man to 
suffer a stroke.

Some of the Palestinian detainees who were abducted during the past 
three weeks have reported being interrogated, humiliated and beaten by 
Israeli prison guards, intelligence agents and soldiers.
