Palestinian prisoners escape from Israel’s most secure prison through tunnel
TEL AVIV – Israeli police have launched a search operation to find six Palestinian prisoners, who managed to escape from a high-security prison in Gilboa in one of the rare breakouts.
Media reports said the men, who were political prisoners, shared the same detention cell where they dug a tunnel below a toilet and crawled their way out of what is dubbed as most secure prison.
The Palestinian prisoners have been identified as Zakariye Zubeidi, 46, Monadel Yacoub Nafe’at, 26, Yaqoub Qassem, Yaqoub Mahmoud Qadri, 49, Ayham Nayef Kamamji, 35, and Mahmoud Abdullah Ardah, 46.

Most of them, according to reports, were serving life sentences in the jail since long.
Israeli police spokesperson told media, “Overnight, we received a number of reports about suspicious figures in agricultural fields and from the prison service, which discovered very quickly that prisoners were missing from their cells and that six escaped”.
He said that search operation is underway to trace the Palestinians.
