Israeli occupation forces have detained more than 9,450 Palestinians from the West Bank, including occupied Jerusalem, since the start of the ongoing Israeli onslaught on the Gaza Strip on October 7, 2023, according to the Palestinian Prisoners Affairs Authority and the Palestinian Prisoner’s Society (PPS).

In a joint statement, the two organizations clarified that this figure includes those arrested from their homes, at military checkpoints, those who surrendered under pressure, and those taken as hostages.

The statement further detailed that at least 20 individuals, including siblings and former prisoners, were arrested by Israeli authorities in the past two days alone from various provinces of the West Bank, including Hebron, Tulkarm, Nablus, and Jerusalem.

Israeli occupation forces continue their campaign of arrests through raids, extensive harassment, brutal beatings, threats against detainees and their families, alongside widespread acts of sabotage and destruction of civilian homes, the statement added.
