Several Palestinian parties urged people to take to the streets after Friday prayers in protest against occupation and in support of their compatriots who escaped on Monday from Gilboa prison, baptized as ‘the safe’ for its presumed inviolability.
The Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas), which controls the coastal enclave called the event as ‘The Day of Wrath.’
In last two nights, marches were conducted in different cities such as Hebron, Bethlehem, Ramalá¸ Anabta, Tubas and Jenin, ending up in clashes between civilians and Israeli forces.
The six escapees, five from Islamic Jihad and one from Fatah, hail from or around Jenin.
