Palestinian security forces arrested three young Palestinians in Jenin refugee camp, including the son of Zakaria Zubeidi, one of the terrorists who escaped from Gilboa prison, Hebrew media reported early Saturday morning. The three Palestinians reportedly resisted arrest, so police detained them by force. The reason behind their arrest is still unclear.

Reacting to documentation of the arrest, gunmen took to the streets of the refugee camp in protest, with some opening fire. Palestinian Authority (PA) officials from Ramallah have been working with field activists in the refugee camp to calm the area, according to Haaretz.

Zakaria Zubeidi was the former Jenin chief of the Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades, Fatah’s armed wing, and later made recent headlines after escaping prison in September along with five other terrorists by digging a tunnel. All of the inmates were eventually recaptured.
