Minister confirms probe into prison break: ‘We will leave no stone unturned’

Public Security Minister Omer Barlev confirms in an official statement that he has decided to form a government commission to probe the escape of six Palestinian security prisoners from Gilboa Prison earlier this week.

The statement says that the move has been coordinated with Prime Minister Naftali Bennett.

Barlev says that he has received the approval of Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit for the move, and he will soon ask the government to approve it.

“We will leave no stone unturned,” Barlev says. “I trust the Government of Israel to approve my recommendation so that we can get to the bottom of the events that led to the grave outcome.”
