Six Palestinian prisoners, including Ahmad Sa'adat, leader of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, have surrendered to IDF forces at the Jericho Prison. Among the six are the murderers of former Tourism Minister Rehavam Ze'evi. The IDF was forced to storm the Jericho Prison in order to capture after British and American observers withdrew from the premises Tuesday morning. The events in Jericho sparked a rash of violence throughout the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, in which some eight foreigners were abducted in protest.
