NABLUS, -- Specialist in prisoners’ affairs Abdelnasser Farwana said that Israel kidnapped during only four months 1, 451 Palestinians including nine women and 100 children under age 18.

Farwana added in a report that most of the arrests took place in the West Bank and occupied Jerusalem except for 28 arrest incidents in the Gaza Strip in addition to 25 fishermen detained for varying periods by the Israeli navy.

He pointed out that the talk is about kidnappings that took place during the period extending from the first of January to 30 April and there are citizens who were taken prisoners more than once in the same reporting period.

The specialist also noted that all those Palestinians were kidnapped as usual either during raids on homes, confrontations, at military checkpoints, from streets and workplaces, or at sea.
