Israel's arrests of Palestinians 'highest in years'

"Israel's campaign of arrest, whether it be in times of crisis or times of relative peace, is always a political tool and a form of collective punishment. It represents a premeditated policy of discouraging Palestinian political involvement, and an attempt to stop a people who are pursuant of their legitimate right to both self-determination and basic dignity," said Abu Zeyad.

Some 1,268 Palestinians have been arrested by Israeli occupation forces over the last two months.
