IDF Chief of Staff Aviv Kohavi says the military will “invest all of [its] capabilities, tools and technology” in the ongoing manhunt to find the remaining two Palestinian fugitives who broke out of Gilboa Prison last week.

“This is an intelligence effort alongside a local security effort. We will continue to invest all of our capabilities, tools and technology in order to serve this effort and to catch the final terrorists who broke out,” he says.

Kohavi makes his remarks following a visit to the IDF Central Command to meet with local commanders and receive the latest update regarding the manhunt.
