6 terrorist prisoners’ escape has “already entered history,” says PA daily

Excerpt of an editorial by the official PA daily

“For six days all the Palestinians hoped that the six heroic prisoners who dug the freedom tunnel in the occupation’s Gilboa Prison would succeed in completely disappearing from the eyes of the Israeli occupation forces (refers to Gilboa Prison escape; see note below -Ed.)…

The occupation state mobilized all its security resources and teams and came out in its entirety to search for them. But it did not know that the example of the freedom tunnel had already entered history, and that the matter was finished…

The re-arrest of the six prisoners will not erase this magnificent example, which the Palestinians will tell of from generation to generation. Since the occupation state does not want this example to become a story of Palestinian pride, it began to spread fabricated stories regarding the means that led it to re-arrest four of them until now! The goal of these stories is to besmirch the national integrity of the Palestinians behind the Green Line (i.e., Palestinian term for Israel; the Green Line is the ceasefire line between Israel and the neighboring Arab countries, 1949-1967), and especially in the Arab city of Nazareth (refers to Israeli Arabs who reported on the escaped terrorist prisoners -Ed.).”
