              <p><span class="date-display-single"></span>According to a
                joint report issued by the Prisoners Club of Palestine,
                the Mayzan Center for Human Rights, and Addameer, there
                were 483 Palestinians arrested by occupation authorities
                during the month of October. Of these 483, 125 were
                children and 8 were women.</p>
              <p>By area there were 137 arrested from Jerusalem, 80 from
                the Hebron area, 20 from the Nablus area, 52 from the
                Ramallah and al Bireh area, 28 from Qalqiliya, 82 from
                Jenin, 32 from Bethlehem, 15 from Tubas, 7 from Salfeet,
                15 from Tulkurm, 8 from Jericho, and 7 from Gaza.</p>
              <p>In regard to administrative detention, the process
                whereby an individual is imprisoned for a potentially
                infinite amount of time with no charge, the occupation
                issued a total of 86 orders. 35 of these orders were
                new, while the remaining were renewals for current
                detainees.</p>
              <p>Out of the total number of prisoners in Israeli jails,
                59 are women, and, of these 59, 11 are children.</p>
              <p>While the number is considerably lower than its peak
                for the year, of 880 that came in July amid the popular
                uprising in Jerusalem, the figure still remains high
                considering the current climate.</p>
              <p>Attacks against soldiers or settlers in the West Bank
                have severely decreased, even from this time last year.
                The occupation authorities would assert that it is
                because of the arrests that they are down, but such
                logic is simply a cover to justify the continued
                repression of the Palestinian people.</p>
              <p>These arrests are less about security, and more about
                passivity. They seek to maintain a cooperative
                population in the West Bank and Gaza, while the
                occupation forces continue their appropriation of
                Palestinian land and violent repression of the
                Palestinian quest for self-determination and dignity.</p>
