Israel extends detention of 4 Palestinians caught after jailbreak

12/09/2021 08:03 PM

JERUSALEM, Sept 12  -- The Israeli Magistrate’s Court in the northern Nazareth city has extended the detention of four Palestinian inmates, who had escaped from a high-security prison earlier this week, till Sept 19, Anadolu Agency quoted the Israeli media on Sunday.

The Israeli General Prosecution had requested during a session held late Saturday to extend their detention for 13 days, but the court approved a 9-day extension, the state-owned KAN news TV reported.

Israeli police claim that the four Palestinians had allegedly planned to a carry out a “serious terrorist act”, a crime that is punishable to 15 years in prison, according to Haaretz newspaper.

Israeli prosecutors accused the four of jailbreak and inciting others to escape from prison, a felony that is punishable by up to 20 years in jail.

On Monday, six Palestinian inmates tunnelled out of the high-security Gilboa prison in northern Israel. Israeli forces, however, have managed to capture four of them after a manhunt.

The remaining two are still at large.

The jailbreak has been hailed as a “big victory” by Palestinians, while Israelis decried it as a major security and intelligence failure.
