Monday, the Palestinian Prisoners Authority's lawyer, Khaled Mahajna, said that an Israeli Occupation court agreed to prevent the four Palestinian escapees who were recently recaptured from meeting their lawyers.
Hebrew media revealed Sunday that the Palestinian prisoner Zakariye Zubeidi will be transferred to Rambam Hospital in historical Palestine to receive treatment. This came as his health deteriorated after he was beaten and abused during his arrest Saturday.
Saturday morning, Hebrew media announced the arrest of Zakariye Zubeidi and Muhammad Ardah near Jabal Al-Tur, north of occupied Palestine.
This came hours after the Israeli Occupation arrested Yaqoub Qadri and Mahmoud Arda.
Later Saturday, four Palestinians, who were recaptured after escaping from a high-security prison earlier this week, arrived at the magistrates' court in Nazareth.
During the trial, Zubeidi's lawyer said “We rejected the Israeli [Occupation] police's request to extend his detention for another 13 days, and we reject the charges against him.”
He continued “It is true that he escaped from prison, but this is a natural reaction.”
The lawyer added during a press conference, “I came to defend Zakariye Zubeidi, and we reject the request and accusations of the police and the Israeli [Occupation] prosecution.”
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.
The Israeli Occupation Forces continue to search for two other Palestinian escapees, Monadel Yacoub Nafe’at and Ayham Nayef Kamamji.
