A human rights report kept record of the abduction of 84 Palestinian women and girls by the Israeli occupation forces (IOF) over the past six months.

 

According to a report by the Palestine Prisoners Studies Center, 84 Palestinian women and girls were arrested by the Israeli forces since the start of 2017.

 

Media spokesperson for the center, Reyad al-Ashkar, said the Israeli forces have been chasing down Palestinian women and girls in a attempt to prevent them from joining anti-occupation protests or carrying out attacks against the Israeli soldiers and settlers.

 

Several Palestinian women and girls have been arbitrarily detained or/and shot on suspicion of intending to carry out anti-occupation attacks.

 

Among those arrested over the past few months, nine were identified as minors, among whom 12-year-old Hadil al-Rajabi, who was summoned to questioning in al-Mascoubiya detention center.

 

14-year-old Aya Amr was also kidnapped on allegations of attempting to stab troopers at the Qalandiya checkpoint. Palestinian child Malek al-Ghalidh, aged 14, had been subjected to heavy beating in the pre-detention phase.

 

Two sisters from the blockaded Gaza Strip were also arrested by the Israeli forces at Beit Hanun (Erez) border-crossing on their way to a hospital in the West Bank for urgent treatment. One of the detainees is reportedly cancer-stricken.

 

Several other women and girls were arrested after they were shot and injured by the Israeli forces. The list included 17-year-old Takwa Hamad and 39-year-old Asia al-Ka’bana, both natives of Ramallah.
