6,000 Palestinians in Israeli jails including 52 women and 270 minors: Report

RAMALLAH - More than 6,000 Palestinians continue to languish in Israeli detention facilities including six parliament members, 52 women and 270 minors, Anadolu Agency reported on Wednesday. The Israeli forces frequently carry out wide-ranging arrest campaigns across the occupied West Bank and Jerusalem on the pretext of searching for “wanted” Palestinians, Anadolu said quoting Palestinian sources. Israeli forces detained 15 Palestinians in overnight raids carried out across the occupied West Bank, according to the Israeli military on Wednesday. The individuals were arrested for “suspected involvement in popular terrorist activities”, the army said in a statement, without elaborating the nature of activities. - APP/AA
