This is what became of the “amnesty” deal that Israel made with West Bank terrorists: Al Aqsa militants break out of West Bank prison.
“Break out?” Apparently, they walked out, and no one tried very hard to stop them.
NABLUS, West Bank (AFP) - Twelve Palestinian militants escaped from a Palestinian-run prison in the northern West Bank city of Nablus overnight, Palestinian security officials said on Saturday.
The detainees, members of the Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades, an armed group loosely tied to Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas’s Fatah party, were wanted by the Israeli army, the officials said. They had been detained in the Jneid prison under a July 2007 agreement with Israel that allows militants to surrender their weapons and serve a three-month period of detention in exchange for amnesty.
“We left the prison because of the aggression on the part of masked members of the national security forces against the detainees. There were scuffles and then we left,” one of the detainees, Mahdi Abu Ghazaleh, told AFP.
This is a good demonstration of the utter contempt Palestinians have for an international community that never holds them to account for anything: they don’t even try to come up with a good story. Because they know they don’t need to.
