Nearly 600 Terror Suspects Arrested in August


Israeli security forces detained 597 terror suspects in Judea, Samaria and Jerusalem in August, raising the number of terrorists and suspected terrorists in Israeli prisons to more than 7,000, the Palestinian Prisoners Club said.

The majority of the arrests took place in eastern neighborhoods of Jerusalem and in the Judean city of Hevron - both of which are hotbeds of support for Hamas, which led attacks against Israel during Operation Protective Edge - according to the Ramallah-based NGO.
