On Friday, the Israeli broadcaster Kan published the first pictures of the drilling tools used by Palestinian prisoners escaping from Gilboa Prison.
Kan reported that the tools were revealed by the lawyer of one of the prisoners, Mahmoud Al-Ardah, who was arrested again after escaping in Nazareth, and were hidden in the floor of the cell.
According to what was published by “Kan”, the photo showed the prisoners using a pen not exceeding 15 cm in length attached to a piece of metal, and the tip of a hanger, in addition to a metal S-shaped machine believed to belong to a piece of metal utensils.
On Friday, the model announced that he planned the escape operation, and said: “The exit hole from the tunnel inside the room was made by myself, and I used an iron screw that I had found, and the screw was strong to the point of penetrating iron.”
He explained that he also had a piece of metal from one of the cupboards in the room that helped him cut the iron sheet covering the sewer hole.
In an incident that sparked public alarm in Israel, on September 6, 6 Palestinian prisoners escaped from Gilboa prison through a tunnel, but the Israeli authorities later arrested 4 of them.
