Prison is a Still a Turning World

This paper mainly draws on interviews specifically conducted with prisoners who spent more than ten years in detention for the purpose of this paper. It also relies on an archive holding records of hundreds of visits conducted by Addameer to the occupation’s prisons over the years. During these visits, Addameer documented various praxes the occupation uses against prisoners, the nature of the prisoners’ daily life, and all the policies they face.

Addameer Association views with great concern the increasing number of political arrests in the West Bank

The Palestinian Security Forces (PSF) arrested approximately 65 Palestinians during the month of August, including 6 university students. During the last week of August, about 22 political arrests by the General Intelligence and Preventive Security agencies were recorded, 5 of whom were arrested after being summoned for questioning. Additionally, a female citizen was summoned for questioning, and an entire family was arrested in the city of Nablus.

For the fifth consecutive day, the Israeli occupation forces continue to impose a blockade and security measures on the town of Aqraba, south of Nablus.

In the early hours of Thursday, August 24, 2023, a large force affiliated with the Israeli army consisting of more than 30 military vehicles and more than 100 soldiers raided the town. They initiated a wide-ranging campaign of home invasions that affected more than 20 houses, conducting searches and causing destruction.
