14 Palestinians Arrested by ’Israel’ Every Night
Local Editor

Human rights groups renewed their calls on "Israel" to release Palestinian Legislative Council member Khalida Jarrar and all other so-called administrative detainees held without charge or trial.

Jarrar, a prominent leftist politician, was arrested on 2 July along with women's union leader Khitam Saafin and 9 others in pre-dawn raids.

Saafin was released from "Israel's" "HaSharon" prison on 1 October after spending three months in detention.

"I am thankful to those who took action on my behalf. I am also happy that I am released but at the same time sad that I left 56 women in Israeli jails who are suffering from poor conditions, especially those that need medical treatment," Saafin told Amnesty International after her release.

Jarrar remains imprisoned under a six-month administrative detention order that can be renewed indefinitely.

She previously spent 14 months in administrative detention after an arrest in 2015.

Like all administrative detainees, neither Jarrar nor Saafin have been charged or tried, and are being held by "Israel" based on no evidence.

Jarrar is a leader in the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine and a prominent advocate for Palestinian prisoners' rights.

Last month, "Israeli" occupation authorities renewed the administrative detention of female Palestinian detainee Sabah Faroun for the sixth time.

She was arrested in June 2016 from her home in the village of al-Eizariya east of Occupied Al-Quds. Her four children, the youngest aged 5, were detained alone in a separate room in the house while soldiers strip-searched Faroun and transferred her to a detention center.

"Sabah's family miss the presence of their mother and wife," Addameer said. "Not knowing the reasons of her arrest or the date of her release increases their mental suffering."

Since "Israel" occupied the West Bank and Gaza Strip in 1967, more than 10,000 Palestinian women have been arrested and detained by "Israeli" occupation forces.

"In 2017, Palestinian women and girls are routinely arrested from the streets, Israeli military checkpoints and during violent night raids on their homes during military incursions accompanied with the presence of "Israeli" soldiers, intelligence officers and police dogs, during which destruction of household items and property damage takes place," Addameer stated earlier this year.

Also in September, "Israeli" authorities confirmed the administrative detention for six months of Palestinian-French human rights defender Salah Hamouri.

In September, 431 Palestinians were detained by "Israeli" occupation forces, according to Palestinian human rights groups.

That averages about 14 arrests every night.
