In August, 63 Palestinians Kidnapped by Israel

The Palestinian Prisoners Society (PPS) says that in August, a total number of 63 Palestinians have been kidnapped from the West Bank by Israeli soldiers.

Most of the kidnappings took place in the southern West Bank city of al-Khalil (Hebron) and its nearby towns of Beit Ummar, Tarqoumia, Doura, Bani Neim, Surif, Beit Ola, Al-Thahiriyya and Al-Arroub refugee camp, the PPS said on Thursday.

The society added that at least eight of those kidnapped were sick and required immediate medical attention.

Most of the kidnappings took place during overnight raids by Israeli soldiers, and several detainees, according to their statements to lawyers, were violently attacked and beaten by the soldiers before they were loaded into military vehicles.

The detainees also said that they were not provided with sufficient food or even drinking water, and that they were subjected to bad treatment and harassment.

Meanwhile, the Israeli military, during a pre-dawn invasion on Thursday, searched and ransacked homes in Jenin city and the nearby Burken village, the northern West Bank as well as Jericho (Ariha) city, in the Jordan valley, and kidnapped five Palestinian civilians.
