News websites and social media circulated the scenes of the escape of Palestinian prisoners from Gilboa prison, and spread the story of a rusty spoon that was said to have defeated the security of Tel Aviv.
The story of the escape of 6 prisoners in a Hollywood manner occupied the world, on Monday evening, so how did they succeed in digging a tunnel over a period of 6 years, especially since Gilboa Prison, known as the “Iron Safe” is considered one of the safest and most tight prisons?
A spoon and a knife exposed the illusions of the technical and technical progress of the Zionist entity. This entity is unable to detect tunnels, so how is it able to detect suicide marches if they are launched towards its oil, chemical and nuclear platforms??!!#freedomtunnel pic.twitter.com/OprxSYxb5W

The newspaper quoted a senior security official as saying that this incident is one of the worst of its kind in Israel.
In the same context, the Ynet news website, affiliated with the Israeli newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth, stated that the Palestinian prisoners used the (bed-pillar) to dig the Gilboa prison tunnel from inside the “cell bath”, and the toilet floor conditions helped them to complete the excavation process well and quickly.
As Arik Yaacoub, the commander of the Israeli Northern District, explained some of his speculations about how the Gilboa prison tunnel was dug, he speculated that the hole through which the prisoners exited might have been a gap in the prison building, as part of the basics.
And the commander of the northern Israeli region expected that the escape of the Palestinian prisoners from the Gilboa prison tunnel did not take place through a tunnel dug by the prisoners, but rather occurred due to the presence of an area under the building.
The commander of the Israeli Northern District continued, “I am of course not an engineer, but it turns out that this prison was built on stilts in 2004 and there are empty air spaces between the roofs throughout the prison.”
The occupation forces bombed Gaza after the Hollywood escape of 6 prisoners..This is what Hamas said!
On the evening of Monday, September 6, the Zionist occupation forces bombed the Gaza Strip after the Hollywood escape of 6 prisoners from Gilboa prison, despite the heavy security.
Hamas spokesman Hazem Qassem said that the bombing of the Gaza Strip is an attempt by the occupation to cover up its inability and failure in confronting the struggle of our people.
Qassem added, that this comes especially after the heroic operation in which six of our people’s fighters took their freedom from Gilboa prison.
The Israeli Air Force launched a series of air raids on several sites in the northern Gaza Strip, in response to the launching of incendiary balloons from the Strip into southern Israel.
And the Israeli army said in a statement: “Tonight, warplanes raided a site for the production of rocket-propelled grenades belonging to the terrorist organization Hamas.”
In pictures… Hollywood escapes of Palestinian prisoners from a high-security Israeli prison
On Monday, September 6, 6 Palestinian prisoners managed to escape in a Hollywood manner from an Israeli prison, despite heavy security.
Israeli media said that 6 Palestinian prisoners escaped at four in the morning from Gilboa prison.
She added that they escaped by digging a underground tunnel, and that they were from the Fatah movement, including Zakaria al-Zubaidi, who was the commander of the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades in Jenin.
The preliminary examination showed that the six fugitives were in the same cell, and that the length of the tunnel they had dug over the years was tens of meters. It was also revealed that the tunnel hole was discovered a few meters outside the prison walls
The Hebrew channel published a picture claiming to be of the tunnel from which the 6 Palestinians escaped. It also published another picture with their names written in Hebrew.
Palestinian media reported that the six escapees are Palestinian prisoners sentenced to life imprisonment in Gilboa Prison.
Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhoum said in a press statement that the prisoners’ ability to “extort their freedom despite all the security measures and complications is a heroic and brave act and a victory for the prisoners’ will and determination.”
Meanwhile, Islamic Jihad spokesman Daoud Shehab said that the prisoners’ escape is “a great heroic act that will severely shake the Israeli security system and will constitute a severe blow to Israel.”
The Palestinian street received the news of the prisoners’ escape, with cheers and magnifications, and many celebrated this historic event that shook the lie of the indomitable security system.
For its part, the Palestinian Prisoners Club referred to some information about the prisoners whom the occupation announced that they had escaped from prison at dawn today.
He explained that one of the prisoners is Mahmoud Abdullah Arida (46 years), from Arrabeh, Jenin, who has been detained since 1996 and sentenced to life imprisonment.
As for the second prisoner, he is Muhammad Qassem Arida (39 years old), also from Arraba, and has been detained since 2002, and is sentenced to life imprisonment.
The third prisoner is Yaqoub Mahmoud Qadri (49 years old), from Bir al-Basha, Jenin, and has been detained since 2003, and is sentenced to life imprisonment.
The fourth prisoner is Ayham Nayef Kammaji (35 years old), from Kfardan, Bejain, and has been detained since 2006, and is sentenced to life imprisonment.
The prisoner Zakaria Zubeidi (46 years old), from Jenin camp, managed to escape, and he has been detained since 2019, and he is still detained without a verdict.
As for the last prisoner, he is Mujahid Yaqoub Infaat (26 years old), who is worshiped in Jenin, and has been detained since 2019.
It is noteworthy that Gilboa Prison, from which the prisoners managed to escape, is highly guarded. It was established in 2004, and the prisoners are staying there, “extremely dangerous,” according to the occupying entity.
Retired Major General Rami Afodia in the occupation army, who previously held a high position in the prison service, compared in an interview with the official Hebrew radio, the six prisoners who managed to escape, to the failure of the Israeli army in the war of 73, warning that some of the prisoners who managed to escape were convicted of killing Soldiers and settlers.
As for General Asher Vennin, who previously worked as an inspector for the Prisons Authority, he said in an interview with the same radio station, that he was surprised by the prisoners’ escape, stressing that “it is an unusual event, but I hope that they will be able to find the fugitives and draw lessons from the incident.”
Vkenin pointed out that Jablo’ prison, from which the prisoners escaped, is one of the most protected and secured prisons in Israel, due to the nature of the prisoners held there, many of whom are serving lengthy prison sentences. He expected that the prisoners had managed to mislead the prison inspection teams.
