Two Palestinians in the West Bank are charged as accomplices to the prisoners who escaped from the Gilboa prison in northern Israel last month.

The two are accused of offering shelter to two of the escaped prisoners, who were later apprehended in the West Bank city of Jenin.

The suspects are named as Ihab Salama and Abd al-Rahman Abu Ja’afar.

According to the charge sheet, Salama gave the two prisoners a ride and found them a place to stay, while Abu Ja’afar hosted them until their arrest by Israeli forces.

The fugitives were Iham Kamamji and Munadil Nafiyat, both members of the Islamic Jihad terror group.
