Israeli occupation waged a 51-day savage war on the Gaza Strip started in July 8. It killed 2,148 Palestinians and wounded more than 11,000 others.

Israeli forces have arrested hundreds of West Bank Palestinians since the disappearance and subsequent killing of three Jewish settlers in mid-June.

Since then, the Israeli authorities have been launching a restless campaign of detention in the occupied territory.

Several Hamas lawmakers as well as dozens of ex-detainees who had been released as part of a 2011 prisoner swap between Hamas and Israel were detained as part of the campaign.
