Days of Palestine, West Bank -Israel occupation forces have kidnapped 215 Palestinian women, including minors, since start of Jerusalem Intifada in October last year.

According to the Palestinian Prisoners’ Centre for Studies (PPCS), the kidnapped women included the mothers, wives and daughters of prisoners, as well as women who are over 60 years old.

PPCS Spokesman Riyad al-Ashqar said that there had been a “notable increase” in the targeting of Palestinian women, noting that there is at least one kidnapping every day.

Some of the women, who were kidnapped, were released after a short period, he explained, while others were investigated first or held under administrative detention or in prison hospitals because they were injured during the kidnapping.

There are currently 68 Palestinian women currently in Israeli jails, including 11 wounded and 18 minors. The youngest is 14-year-old Istabraq Nour, who was wounded as she was shot when kidnapped.
