RAMALLAH, (PIC)-- MP Khaleda Jarrar has lambasted the world community for remaining silent towards the Israeli detention of Palestinian lawmakers including Ahmed Saadat, Marwan Al-Barghouthi and speaker of the Palestinian legislative council Dr. Aziz Dwaik.

Jarrar, who is a politburo member of the PFLP, told a foreign delegation on Tuesday that that Israel detains tens of women and 300 minors along with 540 administrative detainees, who are held without charge or trial.

She elaborated on the Israeli racist decisions against those prisoners including isolating them from the outside world, depriving them of TVs, radios, newspapers and books and lately forcing them to wear orange uniforms.

Meanwhile, Israeli occupation forces at dawn Wednesday rounded up ten Palestinians in Jenin, Bethlehem and Ramallah districts while on Tuesday the IOF soldiers rounded up 15 Palestinians from various West Bank areas.
