The report published on Monday by Ahrar Center for Detainees' Studies and Human Rights exposed human rights violations committed by the Tel Aviv regime against Palestinians.
It noted that six journalists, 17 women and 42 children, were among those detained last month mostly in the occupied West Bank, the besieged Gaza Strip, and East al-Quds (Jerusalem).
The figures came a few days after Israeli authorities threatened to arrest the Palestinian activists who post anti-Israeli remarks on Facebook.
According to latest reports, there are over 7,000 Palestinians in 17 Israeli prisons and detention camps. Among Palestinian prisoners behind Israeli bars, there are 18 women, 250 children, 1,500 sick detainees, who are mostly in a critical condition, and 540 Palestinians held under administrative detention without any trial.
Administrative detention is a sort of imprisonment without trial or charges that allows Israel to incarcerate Palestinians for up to six months.
Back in June, tens of Palestinian prisoners, who had been on a hunger strike in protest against Israel’s so-called administrative detention, were hospitalized over health problems.
