West Bank, ALRAY - The Israeli occupation authorities have detained 430 Palestinians, including 42 children and 20 women, over the past month, according to the Palestine Centre for Prisoner Studies.


In its monthly report, the centre explained that the Israeli occupation army has conducted raids and detention campaigns across the occupied West Bank and Jerusalem on a daily basis.


Jerusalem saw the highest number of arrest campaigns, where more than 160 Palestinian citizens, including women and children, were detained by Israeli occupation forces last month.


Last month, the Israeli occupation army detained 9 Palestinians from the besieged Gaza Strip, including four fishermen who were detained off the coast of the central Gaza Strip.


Three of the fishermen were released two weeks later, while the fourth is still being held by the Israeli occupation authorities.


Riyadh al-Ashqar, the centre's director, said that the Israeli occupation forces have targeted Palestinian children through detention, house arrest, and fines.


Over the past month, the Israeli occupation military detained 42 Palestinian children, the youngest of whom are 12-year-old Abdul Rahman al-Razim and Mohammed Shwaiki, a 15-year-old child with special needs.


According to the report, the Israeli occupation authorities issued last month 19 house arrest orders against Palestinian Jerusalemites, including Palestinian journalist Lama Ghousha.


The Israeli occupation authorities also issued 65 orders banning Palestinians from accessing the Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Old City for a period ranging between two weeks and six months.


In September, Israeli courts handed down 197 administrative detention orders to Palestinians for a period ranging between two and six months, bringing the number of administrative detention orders issued since the beginning of this year to more than 1,500.
