Security officials said to believe they’ll catch remaining escapees ‘within 2 days’

Channel 13 news reports that security officials believe they are closing in on the remaining two fugitives who escaped from the high-security Gilboa Prison last week.

“We expect that we will catch the terrorists within two days,” the channel quotes an unamed official as saying.

Four of the six escaped prisoners were caught in Nazareth over the weekend, and two remain at large.

The prison break, one of the worst in the country’s history, was made possible by a litany of apparent oversights, mistakes, and blunders by prison guards.
