Images and text posted on the Facebook page of the PLO Supreme Council for Youth and Sports



Posted text: As part of the national responsibility, the [PLO] Supreme Council for Youth and Sports public relations unit held a visit to the families of the tunnel prisoners who restored the national momentum to the prisoners’ cause (refers to 6 terrorist prisoners who escaped from Gilboa Prison; see note below -Ed.), and also to the family of female Martyr Israa Khzaimiah (i.e., terrorist, attempted to stab Israeli security officers) in the village of Qabatiya who achieved Martyrdom-death on the land of Jerusalem and left behind four children. The unit gave them plaques of honor as a sign of appreciation for their sacrifice.


The image shows the PLO Supreme Council for Youth and Sports representatives giving what appears to be the family of terrorist Zakariya Zubeidi – one of the six terrorists who escaped Gilboa Prison before being recaptured – a plaque featuring the PA map of “Palestine” that presents all of Israel together with the PA areas as “Palestine.”

One of the people in the image is holding a poster featuring a picture of Zubeidi and the Fatah logo that includes a grenade, crossed rifles, and the PA map of “Palestine.”

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.
