Sunday, Jenin and Tubas in the occupied West Bank declared a comprehensive strike in solidarity with the Palestinian prisoners who escaped the Gilboa prison last week and were recaptured by the Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF).

All shops, schools, universities, and public institutions will remain closed Sunday in the two cities.

In a statement, the Palestinian National and Islamic Forces that called for Sunday’s strike affirmed that it stands by the prisoners in daily attacks they are subjected to at various Israeli Occupation prisons.

Saturday morning, Hebrew media announced that two more Palestinians- Zakariye Zubeidi and Muhammad Ardah- were found and arrested.

This came hours after the Israeli Occupation arrested Yaqoub Qadri and Mahmoud Arda.

The IOF continue to search for two other Palestinian escapees, Monadel Yacoub Nafe’at and Ayham Nayef Kamamji.

Sept. 6, six Palestinians escaped Israeli Occupation Gilboa prison in the north of the country.

Gilboa prison is considered one of Israeli Occupation’s most secure facilities, due to the heavy fortification and the security procedures followed inside it.
