More than 30,000 Palestinians have been arrested by the Israeli occupation forces in the occupied West Bank and Jerusalem since 2015, detentions rate has increased sharply since then, reports said.

 

Among those arrested last month were 67 children and 16 women.

 

While 16 prisoners have died in Israeli jails, some as a result of torture during interrogation and others due to medical negligence.

 

Since 2015, news laws have been put in place which support the ill treatment of Palestinian prisoners and state terror against them, Palestinian researcher Abdul-Naser Ferwanah explained.

 

He said that these laws permitted the detention of children and approved heavy sentences against them.
