More than 900 Palestinians, including 133 minors and 23 women, were arrested in March and April by the Jewish state, the Palestinian Commission for Prisoners Issues said in a statement.

For decades, Israel and Palestine have tense relations. Palestinians seek diplomatic recognition of their state including the West Bank with East Jerusalem partly occupied by Israel and the Gaza Strip.

The Israeli government refuses to recognize Palestine as an independent political and diplomatic entity and builds settlements in the areas it controls despite the objections of the UN.
