TEHRAN, Jan. 17 (MNA) – A Palestinian rights group says the Israeli military has abducted at least 5,980 Palestinians from the West Bank since early October, when the occupying regime launched its genocidal war on the Gaza Strip.

In a report released on Tuesday, the Palestinian Prisoners Club said that Israel’s mass abduction campaign targeted all Palestinians, including women, children, the elderly, the wounded, and the sick.

Former prisoners who had endured years in the occupation’s jails were also among the detainees along with mothers who were held as hostages to pressure their wanted sons, it added.

The Palestinian group also noted that al-Khalil Governorate in the southern West Bank had the highest number of abductions with 1,300.

It further said that many of the abductees in al-Khalil were incarcerated under the so-called administrative detention, imprisonment without charge or trial. 

A total of 30 families were targeted by Israel’s mass arrest campaign in al-Khalil, the latest of which was the Abu Jahisha family from the town of Idna, according to the report.

The occupying regime has also kidnapped the bodies of 18 al-Khalil martyrs.

Israeli forces have escalated raids on Palestinian towns as part of a sweeping campaign of arrests in the occupied West Bank, where Palestinians have held protests in solidarity with Gaza.

At least 355 Palestinians have been killed and nearly 4,000 injured by Israeli troops in the West Bank since the Gaza war erupted on October 7, according to the latest figures by the Palestinian Health Ministry.

Israel waged brutal aggression against Gaza after the Palestinian Hamas resistance movement carried out a historic operation against the usurping entity in retaliation for its intensified atrocities against the Palestinian people.

So far, the Tel Aviv regime has killed at least 24,285 Palestinians, mostly women and children, and injured 61,154 others in Gaza.

Thousands more are also missing and presumed dead under the rubble in the besieged Palestinian territory, which is under “complete siege” by Israel.
