RAMALLAH (AFP) -- Israeli forces detained 597 Palestinians in the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem in August, raising the number of Palestinians in Israeli prisons to more than 7,000, the Palestinian Prisoners Society said.

The majority of the arrests took place in East Jerusalem and Hebron, which is situated in the south of the West Bank, the NGO, based in Ramallah, said in a statement.

Many were arrested during demonstrations in support of Palestinians in Gaza, which was the focus of a deadly 50-day war between Israel and Hamas, the de facto ruler of Gaza.

Since the June kidnapping and murder of three Israeli teenagers in the southern West Bank, at least 2,000 Palestinians have been questioned and detained, according to the NGO.

Hey, August is not up yet. We can only hope that Israel puts away more terrorists. It is not all bad news, Fatah officials are going to be running Gaza soon. Can anyone say gravy train. Fatah will show its skill in making money on Palestinian misery. Hamas leaders sure made out good while they controlled the glow of goods into Gaza.
