Iham Kamamji and Munadil Nafiyat, both members of the Islamic Jihad resistance movement have been reportedly detained in the occupied West Bank city of Jenin on Sunday, Israeli ministry of military affairs announced.
The two Palestinian escapees "were caught alive" and surrendered without resistance as the Israeli forces encircled the building they were hiding.
Father of Iham Kamamji told Associated Press that his son had called him when the Israeli forces encircled the house and said he would surrender in order to prevent any threat posed against the house owner.
Iham Kamamji had been sentenced to life in prison in 2006 over alleged killing of an Israeli settler.
Nafayat has been jailed merely over Islamic Jihad membership. He has been kept in prison under the so-called administrative detention which permits the Israeli regime to imprison suspects without a specific charge.
Six Palestinian prisoners escaped Israel's maximum security Gilboa prison in the early hours of September 6. Four of the escapees were detained on September 11 as reported by Israeli media outlets.
This is while the Palestinian resistance movement Hamas had warned of serious consequences if the Israeli regime took repressive measures against those prisoners in the jail.
