RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained three Palestinians from the central and northern occupied West Bank before dawn on Thursday, according to the Palestinian Prisoner’s Society (PPS).

PPS said in a statement that in the northern West Bank, two Palestinians were detained from Qalqiliya city. They were identified as Adam Luay Taha, 27, and Ayman Luay Taha, 24.

Meanwhile in the central West Bank district of Ramallah, Israeli forces detained one Palestinian from the al-Jalazun refugee camp, identified as Hamad Nathmi.

Israeli forces detained 431 Palestinians over the course of the month of September, including 98 children, 11 women, and three journalists, according to a joint report released Sunday by Palestinian prisoners' rights group Adameer, PPS, and the Al-Mezan Center for Human Rights.

The majority, 133, were detained in the Jerusalem district, while 60 were detained from the Hebron district, 45 from the Nablus district, 40 from the Ramallah district, 38 from the Jenin district, 28 from the Bethlehem district, 15 from the Tubas district, 10 from the Salfit district, nine from the Tulkaram district, seven from the Jericho district, and six from the Gaza Strip.

The report documented that the number of Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails reached 6,300 prisoners, including 57 female prisoners, 10 underage girls, approximately 300 children, and 450 administrative detainees -- prisoners detained without charge or trial. In the month of September, the occupation authorities issued 68 administrative detention orders, 24 of which were new orders.

"The four organizations strongly condemn Israel's gross and systematic violations of international law, and its disregard for the rights of Palestinian detainees. We also condemn the continuing occupation authorities' disregard of the legal guarantees provided by international legal regulations," the report said.
