ON INTERNATIONAL WORKERS' DAY: THE OCCUPATION HAS ARRESTED THOUSANDS OF PALESTINIAN WORKERS AFTER THE SEVENTH OF OCTOBER.

The Israeli occupation system has targeted Palestinian workers, as well as all segments of the Palestinian people, over many decades. Arrests and persecution have been among the occupation's prominent policies. Moreover, a significant portion of Palestinian prisoners who have struggled for the freedom of their land and people come from the working class. Over the years, the occupation has worked on developing its tools and policies to target them, depriving them of their rights, and imposing further control and surveillance on their right to work and life.

SUMMARY OF ARREST CAMPAIGN DATA FROM OCTOBER 7TH UNTIL TODAY, APRIL 22, 2024:

These data do not include any figures regarding the number of arrests from Gaza, as the occupation continues to refuse to disclose them and enforces enforced disappearance against them, estimated to be in the thousands. It should be noted that the occupation has detained hundreds of Gaza workers in the West Bank, along with Gaza citizens who were present in the West Bank for medical treatment.

Summary of Arrest Campaign Data from October 7th until today, April 22, 2024:

This summary includes data of those arrested from the West Bank, while detainees from Gaza remain subjected to enforced disappearance.

- The total number of arrests in the West Bank, including Jerusalem, exceeded 8,425.
  
- Women: The total number of female arrests is around 280. This includes women arrested from the territories occupied in 1948 and cases of women from Gaza and arrested from the West Bank.

- Children: The number of child arrests is approximately 540.

During the month of Palestinian Prisoners' Day (17th of April) Addameer issues an urgent call for action to the free people of the world.

The crimes of the Israeli occupation against Palestinian prisoners have intensified since last October 7th. The occupation authorities have launched a wide-ranging campaign of arrests targeting all sectors of the Palestinian people. More than 8000 male and female detainees have been arrested since October 7th. 80% of them are held under arbitrary administrative detention without charge or trial. 16 Palestinian prisoners have been killed under torture and ill-treatment in the occupation's prisons. Thousands of Palestinians from Gaza are subjected to enforced disappearance.

FACT SHEET ISSUED BY PRISONERS' INSTITUTIONS ON THE EVE OF "PALESTINIAN PRISONER'S DAY" ON APRIL 17, 2024.

The date of October 7 marked a significant turning point that imposed radical transformations on the reality of prisoners and detainees in Israeli occupation prisons. This was reflected across all dimensions related to this issue, in light of the comprehensive aggression against our people and their detainees, and the ongoing genocide against our people in Gaza for over 6 consecutive months.

PHROC Calls on Remaining Third States to immediately and Urgently Fund UNRWA to Prevent Famine and the Genocidal Destruction of the Palestinian People

The Palestinian Human Rights Organizations Council (PHROC) warns that Palestinians in Gaza are currently experiencing catastrophic hunger, and are on the verge of a completely avoidable man-induced famine, engineered by Israel as a weapon of war to destroy the Palestinian people.

Walid Daqqa.. The Prisoner.. The Witness and the Martyr.

The prisoner Walid Daqqa passes away as a martyr in Israeli occupation hospitals, bearing witness to the ongoing crime of colonialism against Palestinian prisoners in the last colonial prisons in the world. Daqqa departs this world after serving a continuous sentence of over 38 years, during which guards changed multiple times and the cell doors rusted shut. In his departure, Daqqa leaves behind a clear image of the inhumane treatment practiced by the occupation, particularly towards Palestinian prisoners.
