Number of Palestinians arrested since Oct. 7 rises to over 3,290: Palestinian group

The Palestinian Prisoners Society reported on Tuesday that the count of Palestinians detained by Israel in the West Bank has surged to over 3,290 since the onset of the conflict on October 7th.
The list includes 125 women and 145 children, the group said.

At least 168 Palestinians have been detained in the five days during the ongoing humanitarian pause in the Gaza Strip.

Six Palestinian detainees have died in Israeli prisons since the conflict started, it added.

Israel launched a massive military campaign in the Gaza Strip following a cross-border attack by Hamas on Oct. 7.

It has since killed over 15,000 people, including 6,150 children and 4,000 women, according to health authorities in the enclave.

The official Israeli death toll stands at 1,200.
