12.02.2024 13:42

At least 6,985 Palestinians detained by Israeli forces in occupied territory since Oct. 7, say prisoners’ rights groups.

Israeli forces detained 35 more Palestinians across the occupied West Bank late Sunday and early Monday, according to prisoners' rights groups.

Israeli forces conducted incursions in several areas of the occupied territory, detaining people in Hebron, Qalqilya, Jenin, Nablus, Ramallah, and Jerusalem, the Commission of Detainees Affairs and the Palestinian Prisoners Society said in a joint statement.

Israeli soldiers picked people up from their homes and detained them at military checkpoints after forcing them to surrender, the statement added.

According to the statement, at least 6,985 Palestinians have been detained by the Israeli army in the West Bank since Oct. 7.

Tensions have risen across the West Bank since Israel launched a deadly military offensive on the Gaza Strip.

Israel has pounded Gaza since the Palestinian resistance group Hamas cross-border attack on Oct 7, killing at least 28,340 Palestinians and injuring 67,984 others. Nearly 1,200 Israelis are believed to have been killed in the Hamas attack.
