Some incarcerated Islamic Jihad members tried to tunnel their way out of the Gilboa prison
, and were thankfully stopped:
The Israel Prisons Service on Sunday foiled an attempt by Palestinian security prisoners to tunnel their way out of Gilboa prison, according to a statement the IPS put out Sunday.
According to the IPS, the eight prisoners, all affiliated with Islamic Jihad, and some of whom are serving lengthy sentences, had begun building a tunnel in the bathroom of the cell.
At the moment the IPS is trying to figure out where the destination of the tunnel was meant to be, though for now they suspect that it was to be used for an escape.
They added that they found the tunnel because of "intelligence" they received.
I think it's time to start adding steel plates beneath the floors of those prisons to ensure high risk security inmates prone to jihad can't escape.
