Israeli police on Saturday arrested two more of the six Palestinian prisoners who escaped from Gilboa prison in northern Israel through a tunnel.

Zakaria Zubeid and Mohamad al-Arida, were found hiding in a truck parking lot in the northern Israeli town of Umm al-Ghanem, a police spokesperson said in a statement.

Zubeid was a commander of Fatah's military wing, the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, in the West Bank city of Jenin. EFE
