An Israeli human rights group accused Israel of violating international law in its handling of Palestinian security prisoners.

In a report issued Thursday, B’Tselem said Israeli security forces have arrested some 9,000 Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, incarcerating many of them within the Jewish state.

This, it said, constitutes a breach of international laws against civilians from an occupied territory being forcibly transferred to the territory of the occupying power. B’Tselem further alleged that prison arrangements make it hard for inmates’ families to visit.

Israel’s Justice Ministry had no immediate comment on the group’s claims, but said Israeli forces make all efforts to grant prisoners visitation rights without compromising national security.
