At least six Palestinian prisoners have escaped from a high-security prison in Israel.
They appeared to have used a tunnel under the Gilboa prison - just north of the occupied West Bank.
Such breakouts are extremely rare.
One of those who managed to escape is Zakaria Zubeidi, a high-profile figure in Fatah's armed wing.
Palestinians and supporters of the Palestinian struggle against Israeli occupation celebrated the news, with many hailing the escapees as “heroes.”

Al Jazeera's Harry Fawcett reports from northern Israel.
