4886 "Security" Inmates are Held in Prisons inside Israel

As of October 2019 Israel holds 4886 Palestinian "security" inmates, consisting of 2924 sentenced prisoners, 1520 remand detainees, 442 administrative detainees held without trial. 

While imprisonment inherently restricts a person's liberty, prisoners and detainees retain all their fundamental rights. The conditions of "security" inmates differ from "regular" inmates. Israel's treatment of security inmates violates their rights to equality, dignity, family life, education, and more, in contravention of international law.

The overwhelming majority of security inmates are Palestinians from the Occupied Territories. 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 also violates 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. Note: Prior to 2018, this data included a handful of Jewish "security" prisoners, such as Yigal Amir.
