Israeli Media: Gilboa Investigation Hits Dead End
Israeli media reports that the search for the 6 prisoners who broke out of the Gilboa Prison has not yielded any significant results so far.
Israeli search operations for the 6 prisoners who liberated themselves have so far not yielded any major results, according to Israeli media, who said that the search has reached a "dead end."
Security camera footage showed that two of the escapees took the road toward Tamra in the north, and the others toward Bisan in the east, where they were picked up by a car three km away. It is probable that they became armed right after they escaped from prison, meaning that Israeli police are on alert for the possibility of an attack.
Israeli occupation forces also decreased the number of roadblocks they had erected from 200 to 89. All of the remaining roadblocks are in the area bordering the occupied West Bank.
In response to the breakout, the Israeli Prison Service tightened its measures in different prisons. The Prisoners' Media Office related that the Prison Service has decided to cut the time prisoners spend outdoors down to one hour, limit the number of prisoners in the prison yard, close down prison canteens, and close the sections of Islamic Jihad prisoners and transfer them to other prisons as punitive steps against the prisoners.
Israeli occupation forces stormed into Jenin city's western entrance and deployed infantry in several locations, while also checking citizens' IDs.
The occupation also launched airstrikes on areas in the Gaza Strip. Israeli media relayed from settlers in "Sderot" that heavy machine guns shots were fired from the Strip after the Israeli raids.
