Total Number of Political Prisoners

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.


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.

In his departure, Daqqa leaves behind a clear image of the inhumane treatment practiced by the occupation, particularly towards Palestinian prisoners.
