The statistics department in Ramallah issued a statement on Monday on the occasion of the Palestinian prisoner’s day, which falls on 22nd April.

The statement noted that the date was chosen for being the day when Lebanese prisoner, Samir Quntar, and the former oldest serving Arab prisoner in Israeli jail was arrested in 1979. Quntar was released in July 1978 in the prisoners’ exchange deal with Lebanese Hizbullah party.

It pointed out that most of those Arab prisoners are from Jordan, adding that hundreds of Arabs went missing in Israel and their fate is not known, whether dead and buried in the cemetery of numbers or held in the secret 1391 jail.

The statement said that many prisoners died in captivity including one from each of Egypt, Iraq, and Syria and many others.
