Public Security Minister Omer Barlev has decided to form a government commission to probe the escape of six Palestinian security prisoners from Gilboa Prison earlier this week, Hebrew media reports.

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

The commission will be headed by a former judge.
