Palestinian human rights reports said that last July the occupation carried out more than 195 raids in different areas in the West Bank, Jerusalem and the Gaza Strip, during which it arrested over 220 Palestinians.

The Palestinian Prisoners Center for Studies reported that most of the arrests took place in the city of al-Khalil, where the occupation arrested last month 60 people.

The center said, in its monthly report on the arrests and prison conditions, that the occupation has also arrested seven citizens from the Gaza Strip.

It added that the Israeli occupation detained during the last month 35 Palestinian children under the age of 18, including a five-year-old child, and three women, including Canadian activist Sarah Ali in al-Khalil after attacking her.

Palestinian MP Mohamed Abu Tir was arrested after the IOF raided his home in Kafr Aqab, north of Jerusalem, while prisoner Eyad Abu Funun from Bethlehem was released and deported to the Gaza Strip.

The Palestinian Prisoners Center for Studies demanded international human rights and humanitarian organizations to form committees to see the difficult situation of captives in Israeli jails, and to intervene to put an end to the occupation crimes against the prisoners and release the hunger strikers.
