  Palestinian Prisoners Organizations: Israeli Occupation Forces
  Detained around 7000 Palestinian in 2017

Several organizations which focus on the rights of Palestinian detainees 
(Committee of Detainees and Ex-Detainees Affairs, Palestinian Prisoners 
Club, Addameer Association, al-Mezan) have documented the numbers of 
Palestinian detainees throughout the year 2017. The results were the 
following: the Israeli occupation forces have detained a total of 6742 
Palestinians from the West Bank and the Gaza Strip. Among them were 1467 
child detainees, 156 women, 14 PLC members and 25 journalists.

Until the end of the year 2017, there were around 6300 Palestinian 
detainees in Israeli detention centers. This number included around 350 
children, 58 women (including 9 minor females) 450 administrative 
detainees, 10 PLC members, and 22 journalists.

Those different organizations have assured through its monitoring that 
the highest number of arrests happened during December 2017. Israeli 
occupation forces have detained 926 Palestinians only during this month, 
around half of those detainees were from East Jerusalem. In fact, the 
Israeli occupation forces implemented a harsh arrest and harassment 
campaign against Palestinian after Trump’s declaration on Jerusalem. 
Israeli occupation forces faced Palestinian protesting the declaration 
with an intense collective punishment policy.

Furthermore, East Jerusalem was the area with the highest amount of 
arrests during the year 2017.  Actually, around 2436 Jerusalemites were 
imprisoned during this year, and child detainees amounted to one third 
out of the total number. Most of those Palestinian detainees are in fact 
ex-detainees which experienced arrest, detention, conditional release, 
or house arrest.
