Occupied Palestine (QNN)- Israeli investigation of Gilbou’s break has estimated that the six Palestinian prisoners, who managed to free themselves, used acid or Coca-Cola to dismantle the concrete floor.
The Israeli KAN News reported that investigators from Yahalam, Special Operations Engineering Unit in the IOF, who investigated the Gilbou’s break estimated that the six Palestinian prisoners who managed to free themselves from Gilbou prison, a high-security Israeli prison, through a secret tunnel they had reportedly dug beneath the prison on September 6, 2021, dismantled the concrete floor with acid or Coca-Cola.
The investigators also said the prisoners dug a tunnel shaft through layers of steel and concrete into the space below.
On the question of how the prisoners dug in the concrete, Yahalam said that “concrete can be weakened and crumbled over time by using various acids, without specific means a Coca-Cola drink can be used.”
The investigation also found that the prisoners dug a tunnel shaft under a marble slab in the shower cubicle, passing through the top tin (5 millimeters of steel) and through the zero floor (20 inches of concrete) into the underground space.
The investigation revealed that the prisoners were forced to dig 29 meters: “The length of the tunnel is about 35 meters, with 29 meters of them dug, with an average diameter of 0.5 meters, i.e. an amount of 5-6 cubic meters of soil.”
Six Palestinian prisoners managed to liberate themselves on September 6, from Gilbou prison, a high-security Israeli prison.
Such a heroic act was a shock for the world as Gilbou prison is deemed Israel’s most secured facility and it has been described as a “bank safe”.
Four of the six breakers were rearrested by the Israeli occupation on September 11, after five days of large-scale sweep operations throughout occupied Palestine using high-tech systems and the two others were rearrested on September 19, after 13 days of sweep operations.
The six prisoners were identified as:
Mahmoud Arda, 46 years old, from Arraba town in Jenin, imprisoned since 1996, sentenced to a life and 15 years and belonging to the Islamic Jihad movement.
Mohammad Arda, 39 years old, from Arraba town in Jenin, imprisoned since 2002, sentenced to life and belonging to the Islamic Jihad movement.
