GAZA, (PIC)- The Israeli occupation forces (IOF) have detained 3300 Palestinians in the year 2011 including women, children, lawmakers, and even disabled persons of all age categories.

Abdulnasser Farwana, a specialist in prisoners’ affairs, said on Monday that the IOF troops captured on average 276 Palestinians per month or 9 daily.

He noted that all detainees were from the West Bank and occupied Jerusalem except 38 from the Gaza Strip including fishermen, who were captured at sea while fishing, or patients and accompanying relatives while on their way for treatment through the Beit Hanun (Erez) northern crossing.

Another statistics report issued by the European network for the defense of Palestinian prisoners indicated that Israel detained 40 Palestinian lawmakers since 2006, mostly from Hamas.

The Oslo-based network said in a statement that Israel was still holding 23 MPs most of whom are held under administrative detention orders, without trial or charge.
