6500 Palestinians, Including 200 Children, Currently Held By
Wednesday December 24, 2014 16:51 by Saed Bannoura - IMEMC News
Abdul-Nasser Ferwana, head of the Palestinian Detainees Committee,
and a member of its follow-up committee in the Gaza Strip, stated that
the ongoing arbitrary kidnappings, carried out by the Israeli army,
especially since the second half of this year, have led to increasing
the number of Palestinian detainees to more than 6500.
said the arrests are largely carried out as “acts of revenge” and
retaliation against a civilian population, and that most of the
kidnapped Palestinians have nothing to do with acts “that could endanger
the security of Israel.”
He added that hundreds of Palestinians
have been kidnapped and released shortly afterwards, without even being
sent to court or facing any charges.
The army kidnapped more
than 4000 Palestinians since June 12, when three settlers went missing
and were later found killed, while most of them were released later on.
“Latest statistics indicate that the current number of detainees
is 6500, held in 18 prisons, detention camps and interrogation centers,”
Ferwana said, “200 of them are children. 21 are women, and nearly 500
are held under administrative detention, without charges or trial.”
Israel is still holding captive the elected head of the Palestinian
Legislative Council, Dr. Aziz Dweik, along with the Secretary-General of
the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) Ahmad Saadat,
member of the Executive Committee of the Fateh Movement Marwan
Barghouthi, and several former government ministers, and officials.
There are 31 detainees who have been imprisoned since more than 20
years; 30 of them were taken prisoner before the establishment of the
Palestinian Authority on May 4 1994, and sixteen of them have been
imprisoned since more than 25 years, including one imprisoned since 32
The former political prisoner added that 478 detainees are
serving at least a life term each, including detainee Abdullah
Barghouthi, who has been sentenced 67 life terms and additional 250
Ferwana also said the number of ailing detainees is
dangerously increasing, especially due to the lack of adequate and
specialized medical attention, and even basic treatment, adding that the
number of ailing detainees is more than 1500.
detainees suffer from different conditions, some very serious conditions
that require surgery and advanced medical attention. Many detainees lost
the ability to walk, while several detainees are amputees.
addition, Ferwana said every Palestinian detainee suffered from at least
one form of torture or violence, physical and emotional, in addition to
degrading treatment targeting them and their families, and bad living
conditions that violate the basic principles of human rights, all
related international agreements and conventions.
He called on
the international community, all related human rights and legal groups,
to perform their duties and pressure Israel into abiding by all
agreements, and human rights treaties.
