“Israeli troops in the occupied West Bank have [abducted] at least five family members of the Palestinians who escaped from a high-security prison this week, a Palestinian prisoners’ group said Wednesday. The six Palestinians fled Monday through a hole dug under a sink at the Gilboa prison in northern Israel. Israel has deployed drones, road checkpoints and an army mission to Jenin, the West Bank hometown of many of the men locked up for their roles in attacks on the Jewish state.” (09/08/21)
