Security prisoner Muhammad Ardeh told his lawyer today (Friday) that the six escaped prisoners arrived at a mosque in the village of Na'ura spontaneously for five or ten minutes and showered there.
This was reported in the Palestinian media.
He said that after leaving the mosque, they intended to reach Judea and Samaria, but were confused in their directions.
After hearing on the radio that the search for them had begun, they were unable to get there.
He further stated that he decided to escape from prison because he had no chance of being released.
In addition, the prisoner denied cooperating with the reconstruction of the escape from Gilboa Prison.
Another captured security prisoner, Mahmoud Ardeh, told his lawyer that the exit opening from the tunnel inside the cell was dug by him and he used a screw he found and was strong enough to penetrate the iron.
He further noted that in the closet in the cell was a coin that assisted him in cutting the iron of the sewer opening.
"We started digging in December 2020 and up to this month," inmate Muhammad Ardeh told his lawyer earlier this week.
According to him, they tried to enter the territories of Judea and Samaria, but due to the wide deployment of many security forces - they avoided it.
Beyond that, it was alleged that the terrorists who fled tried as much as possible not to enter Arab villages in Israel so as not to put the residents in a dilemma.
In addition, prisoner al-Arda told the lawyer that they did not receive assistance from other prisoners inside the prison.
"I am first responsible for the planning and execution of the operation," he was quoted as saying.
He further revealed that during the escape, the prisoners were assisted by a small radio which was updated on the news.
He also expressed concern about the situation of the other prisoners.
