PALESTINIANS poured into the streets of Jenin in the early hours of today morning, throwing stones at occupying Israeli forces as they arrested the last two Palestinian escapees from a daring prison break a fortnight ago.
The Israeli military said that Munadil Nafayat and Iham Kamamji gave themselves up once their hideout in the West Bank city was surrounded, and that it had also taken two others into custody for questioning over having assisted them.
Iham’s father Fouad Kamamji said his son had phoned to say he was going to surrender so as not to endanger those sheltering him.
The pair were among six Palestinians who tunnelled out of the maximum-security Gilboa jail on September 6 in an escape that humiliated their Israeli jailers and was celebrated across Palestine as an act of resistance.
Thousands of Palestinians languish in Israeli prisons, often without having been convicted of any crime in an ordinary court.
Lawyers for two other escapees who have since been recaptured, Zakaria Zubeidi and Mohammed Aradeh, say they have been badly tortured since their rearrests.
