The center said that the army carried out more than 300 invasions into Palestinian cities, towns, villages and refugee camps in November, and kidnapped the 650 Palestinians, including 12 Palestinian fishermen who were kidnapped in Palestinian territorial waters, near the Gaza shore.

Three more Palestinians were kidnapped in Palestinian lands, near the fence separating between Gaza and Israel.

The center added that the army kidnapped 85 children and seven women in the occupied West Bank, in addition to six Palestinian legislators; the number of kidnapped democratically-elected legislators is now 14.

Most of the arrests that were carried out in November were conducted in the northern West Bank district of Nablus as the army kidnapped 120 Palestinians, while 95 Palestinians were kidnapped in occupied Jerusalem and the rest were kidnapped in different parts of the West Bank, and the Gaza Strip.

Furthermore, the Israeli Prison Administration at the Ofer prison, near the central West Bank city of Ramallah, informed the detainees that it intends to increase the number of detainees per room due to the large number of arrests, and also installed tents in the prison compound.

Detention rooms at the Huwwara prison, in the northern part of the West Bank, are now overcrowded due to the sharp increase of arrests carried out by the military.

It is worth mentioning that three detainees are still ongoing with their open-ended hunger strike protesting their illegal imprisonment without charges; detainee Ayman Ash-Sharawna started his strike 153 days ago, detainee Samer Al-Esawy started his strike 123 days ago, and detainee Odai Keelani started his strike 38 days ago.
