Report: 1,552 Palestinians arrested in 2011

July 8, 2011 7:49 P.M. (Updated: July 8, 2011 7:49 P.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- The Detainees Center in the Gaza Strip reported Friday that 1,552 Palestinian citizens had been arrested by Israeli forces in the first half of 2011, including 215 children.

Nineteen Palestinian lawmakers from the Hamas Movement are among those arrested in 2011.

It is unclear how many have been detained indefinitely.

The Center appealed to the international community to actively intervene to curb Israel's persistent violation of human rights in Palestine.
