RAMALLAH, (PIC)– The Israeli occupation forces (IOF) arrested 53 citizens over the course of the past week including nine children and four liberated prisoners.

The Palestine prisoners’ center for studies said in a press release on Saturday that the arrest campaigns targeted the cities of Jerusalem, Al-Khalil, Nablus, Tulkarem, Bethlehem, and Ramallah.

The statement noted that the youngest in the detained nine children was 14-year-old Mohammed Baydon from Silwan town in occupied Jerusalem.

It pointed that two foreign activists were nabbed in Beit Ummar village near Al-Khalil for participating in the weekly anti-wall and anti-settlement march.

The human rights groups said that the IOF soldiers daily raid various West Bank cities, villages, and refugee camps and arrest citizens for interrogation, some of whom are held in administrative custody or serve imprisonment terms.

“On Torture” is an edited volume of essays by Palestinian, Israeli and international legal and medical experts and practitioners based on presentations that they gave during a workshop held in Jerusalem in April 2011 entitled, “Securing Accountability for Torture and Cruel, Inhuman and Degrading Treatment (CIDT) in Israel: New Trends and Comparative Lessons”.

The essayists explore the history of torture in Israel, the daily challenges that practitioners face in seeking accountability for torture and CIDT in Israel, and the changing face of torture.
