Official PA TV program Palestine This Morning, on the trial of 6 terrorist prisoners who escaped from Gilboa Prison – see note below





Official PA TV host: “We will listen to what heroic prisoner Yaqub Qaderi (i.e., terrorist, murdered 1 person together with an accomplice) said in the occupation’s court in Nazareth, as was documented by our reporter.” …


Terrorist Yaqub Qaderi: “We are living inside cemeteries. This is how they want us to be. We will not submit and will continue to stand firm. I have said what is connected to us for the sake of Allah. Palestine is ours – Sakhnin, Umm Al-Fahm (i.e., Israeli cities), Jenin, Gaza, Jerusalem.”


Official PA TV reporter: “The freedom tunnel prisoners (refers to Gilboa Prison escape -Ed.) declared these painful words in the Nazareth Magistrate’s Court, taking advantage of the only opportunity to present their suffering to the eyes of the world, after the Israeli Prison Service cut them off from all the media outlets and violated their basic rights.”


Host: “‘We will leave from the door above ground just as we defeated them underground. We will leave again in spite of you’ – with these words hero Ayham Kamamji defied the occupation’s arrogance.”


Terrorist Ayham Kamamji: “We will triumph, Allah willing. We will leave from the door above ground just as we defeated them underground. We will leave again.”





2021 Gilboa Prison escape – 6 Palestinian terrorist prisoners escaped from Israel's Gilboa Prison on Sept. 6, 2021, by widening the hole of the shower drainpipe in the floor of their cell. One terrorist is from Fatah - Zakariya Zubeidi, and the other five are from Islamic Jihad - Ayham Kamamji, Muhammad Ardah, Mahmoud Ardah, Yaqub Qaderi, and Munadil Nafiyat. Four of the terrorists were recaptured after five days: Zubeidi, Ardah, Ardah, and Qaderi. Kamamji and Nafiyat were arrested in Jenin on Sept. 18, 2021 along with two accomplices. Zubeidi was head of the Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades (Fatah's military wing) in the Jenin area during the PA terror campaign (the second Intifada, 2000-2005), when he oversaw numerous lethal attacks, and he also carried out shooting attacks in 2018-2019. Kamamji participated in the murder of 18-year-old Eliyahu Asheri on June 25, 2006, and planned to blow up a bus using an exploding car. Muhammad Ardah participated in initiating and executing a suicide bombing on bus no. 823 on Nov. 29, 2001, in which 3 people were murdered and many others were wounded. Mahmoud Ardah was involved in numerous attacks; the website of Islamic Jihad’s military wing defined him as the "commander" of the prison escape. Qaderi committed a shooting attack on Sept. 18, 2002 with an accomplice in which Israeli Yosef Ajami was murdered and a foreign worker was wounded. Nafiyat was being held in administrative detention.
