6184 Security Inmates are Held in Prisons inside Israel

As of February 2017 Israel holds 6184 "security" inmates, consisting of 3722 sentenced prisoners, 1930 remand detainees, 532 administrative detainees held without trial. This figure includes a handful of Jewish prisoners (such as Yigal Amir), and a vast majority of Palestinian detainees – residents of the Occupied Palestinian Territories (OPT), permanent residents of East Jerusalem, and Israeli citizens.

Although the prison walls limit the inmate’s freedom of movement, they do not have the power to deny him his other fundamental rights, other than those explicitly deprived by law.
The holding conditions of security inmates incarcerated inside Israel are different from those of "regular" inmates, and their rights to equality, dignity, family life, education, etc., are violated, contrary to international law.

Furthermore, the holding prisoners and detainees from the OPT inside Israel constitutes a blatant violation of the Fourth Geneva Convention, prohibiting the transfer of prisoners and detainees outside the occupied territory, and of basic human rights, enshrined, inter alia, in Israeli law.

The data was provided by the Israel Prison Service (IPS), and includes all "security inmates" in prisons under the IPS jurisdiction, including the Ofer Prison, situated in the West Bank.
