Caught Palestinian prisoners mistakenly thought Israeli Arabs would help

Analysis: Following the capture of 4 of the 6 prisoner escapees, it’s clear the apprehended fugitive Palestinian terrorists expected assistance from the Israeli Arabs before entering a more ‘friendly’ West Bank for weapons and protection.
