A court hands down prison sentences to six Palestinian security prisoners who escaped from a high-security detention center in northern Israel last year.

The six broke out of Gilboa Prison in September and were all later caught at the end of a massive two-week manhunt.

Today’s sentences will be added to the time they are already serving behind bars, along with fines.

Four prisoners who did not escape but who helped the six men to break out of Gilboa Prison were sentenced to four additional years as well as a fine.
