RAMALLAH, (PIC)-- PA security forces in the West Bank continued, during the past month, their arrest campaigns against resistance movements' activists and supporters especially Hamas and Islamic Jihad affiliates.

The movement said that the PA forces jailed hundreds of its activists following summary trials and exercised on them the worst psychological and physical torture.
