The modest spoon has taken place alongside the traditional flag and banner as a symbol of Palestinian resistance, while the prisoners are said to have broken into one of Israel’s most spectacular prisons.
Palestinian September When six Palestinian militants escaped from a high-security Gilboa prison through a tunnel, social networks shared a picture of a tunnel at the foot of a ditch and a hole outside.
A hashtag, “Miracle Spoon”, suggested how Hollywood-style fame came about.
But at first it was unclear whether the pot was really involved or whether its role was cooked.
A lawyer for one of the fugitives later told AFP on Wednesday that his client, Mahmoud Abdullah Ardah, had used a spoon, a plate and even a kettle handle to dig a tunnel from his cell.
Rozlan Mahajana said he began his exit from the northern Israeli establishment in December.
Ardah was one of four fugitives after the army reddened the occupied West Bank as part of a larger operation.
All six were charged with conspiracy or conduct of an attack against the Israelis.
Two people are loose after a very rare escape. Israel has launched an investigation into the flaws that led to the embarrassing incident, which Palestinians see as a “victory”.

Palestinian cartoonist Mohamed Sabaneh says the escape has created “black jokes” and ridiculed Israel’s security system.
He has made several drawings featuring pottery, one of which is The Tunnel of Freedom.
The issue has also been praised outside the Palestinian territories, where demonstrations have been held in support of Israeli detainees.
In Kuwait, artist Maitham Abdal held a spoon in the hand of a giant – “the spoon of freedom”, as he called it.
Similarly inspired, Amman-based graphic designer Raed al-Katnani is symbolically leading six silhouettes to a bridge to freedom, represented by a spoon.
For him, it also highlights the numerous hunger strikes carried out by Palestinian prisoners in protest of their imprisonment.
In the West Bank town of Tulkaram, which has been occupied by Israel since the 1st Bank, the memory of the fugitive Ghassan Mahdabi is brought back. He and another prisoner escaped from an Israeli prison in 1996 through a tunnel dug using nails, not kitchen utensils.
He was arrested during the first Palestinian intifada for his involvement with an armed group in the early 1990s.
“Prisoners can’t do anything … and there is always a flaw in the system,” said Mahdabi, who was re-arrested and then released after a total of 1 year in custody.
In his view, the most recent fugitives could use tools other than the spoon obtained inside the prison, which every prisoner dreams of but to implement what he fulfills.
“Every prisoner thinks of something to escape from Israeli prisons,” Mahdabi said.
To do this with a spoon, he added, something that would “go down in history.”
