The mistakes made by the Prison Service were rectified Friday night by other security branches, with the capture of four of the six Palestinians who escaped from Gilboa Prison last week.

A joint chase by the police, the Shin Bet security service and the Israel Defense Forces led to their apprehension on the outskirts of Arab towns inside Israel. The manhunt for the other two fugitives continues, with security forces investigating the possibility that at least one of them slipped into the northern West Bank and is trying to hide in the Jenin area.
