There are more than 5,000 Palestinian inmates suffering in Israeli prisons, including hundreds of children, the Palestinian Ministry of Detainees and Ex-detainees Affairs says.
Out of the 5,000 inmates 476 are sentenced to life imprisonment, according to the ministry report released Wednesday, which was Prisoner Day.
The report, released by Palestine Information Center, also pointed to other scandalous facts regarding the fate of Palestinian inmates in Israeli prison, including the incarceration of 19 Palestinian women and 200 children.
Several Palestinian minors have grown to maturity inside the Israeli prison systems, the report said.
Over 180 Palestinians are under administrative detention. Eleven lawmakers and several political leaders are also held in 22 Israeli prisons, the Palestinian ministry report stated.
Over the past decades, the Palestinian socio-political scene in the occupied West Bank has been overwhelmed by such Israeli detention campaigns.
Human rights organizations say the detentions executed by Israeli authorities have been explicit breaches of the international humanitarian law.
Palestinians have been held in the most horrible detention circumstances in Israeli jails and have been subject to deadly torture procedures, official Palestinian statistics show.
Reports say the Palestinian detainees have not only undergone physical or psychological torture but have also been publically humiliated and tortured, at times in the presence of their families and children.
