Al Qassam Brigades: Freedom of 'Galboa detainees is a heroic act

September 06, 2021

The Ezzedeen Al Qassam Brigades hailed the unique and heroic act by a group of heroic freedom fighters and prisoners at 'Gilboa' jail, who managed, on Monday morning,  to flee the high-security Gilboa jail near Bisan, northern occupied Palestine in 1948, through a tunnel.

In a statement issued shortly after the incident, Ezzedeen Al Qassam Brigades, the military wing of Hamas movement said: "We praise the unique and heroic act by a group of heroic freedom fighters and prisoners at 'Gilboa' jail, who wrested their freedom with their fingernails under the noses of the Israeli occupation, breaking through the walls of injustice and aggression.

“Working day and night to liberate the prisoners is the duty of every Palestinian, and capturing Israeli occupation soldiers and concluding prisoner exchange deals with the Israeli occupation is an irreversible strategy adopted by the Palestinian resistance to release Palestinian detainees,” the Brigades stated.

The Brigades went on saying “this successful attempt by a group of brave-hearted fighters to restore their freedom themselves under complicated circumstances affirms the correctness of the Palestinian resistance’s approach to liberate Palestinian detainees.”

“We renew our pledge to all our prisoners that their freedom is a religious duty, and breaking their chains is a decision we made and an obligation we must fulfill,” the statement added.

On Monday morning, six Palestinian detainees have fled the high-security Gilboa jail near Bisan, northern occupied Palestine in 1948, through a tunnel that took them almost years to dig. 

The prisoners are: Zakaria Zubeidi, Mahmoud Aardiya, Muhammed Aardiya, Yakub Kadari, Iham Kamagi, and Mondal Ainfaat.
