A Palestinian human rights group has released new numbers on Israeli killings and arrests in the occupied West Bank. The Ahrar Center for Detainees’ Studies and Human Rights says Israeli forces killed six Palestinians and kidnapped over three hundred and ten others in July. Ahrar said the Israeli forces carried out the majority of the detentions in Jerusalem Al-Quds. 20 children and 16 women were among the detainees. Israeli forces routinely raid Palestinian villages in the West Bank to arrest protesters and activists. Violence during the raids has left a large number of Palestinians dead.
