AL-KHALIL, (PIC)-- The Palestinian prisoner society said the Israeli occupation forces (IOF) kidnapped 88 Palestinians from Al-Khalil city alone during December 2012.
"A spirit of extreme revenge and hostility was clearly noticed when the soldiers dealt with the detainees during their arrest, and there were obvious signs of sadistic and fanatical behavior in the way of detention, interrogation and treatment," the prisoner society said in a report on Sunday.
"[The Israeli soldiers] violated the international humanitarian law and all human, moral and religious values when they assaulted the detainees with rifle butts, severely beat them, used the policy of destruction and detonation [during their raids on homes] and locked up families in one room of their houses," the center added.
The center also said it documented the arrest of 12 children under age 18, most of them were taken to Etzion detention center near Bethlehem city where they endured harsh incarceration conditions.
14 of the total reported detainees were transferred to administrative detention without any charges and 28 others are either school or university students who missed their final exams because of their arrest during the month, according to its reports.
It added that more than 30 detainees were transferred to different interrogation centers, while the Israeli military court of Ofer kept stealing money from the detainees through imposing illegally heavy fines against them.
