WASHINGTON, Monday, September 13, 2021 (WAFA) - Protesters rallied in cities across the United States in support of Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails.

In Washington, protesters held a sit-in in front of the Israeli embassy to show their support and solidarity for the six freedom fighters who broke out of Israel’s highly-fortified Gilboa prison last week after they reportedly managed to escape through a tunnel that they dug with spoons.

Four of the prisoners were recaptured, whereas the two other prisoners remain at large.

Protesters threw spoons in front of the embassy to express their support for the six prisoners.

In New York, demonstrators carried banners and pictures of the six prisoners, demanding their release along with all the prisoners from Israeli jails.

In Chicago, a convoy of vehicles roamed the city's streets while waving the Palestinian flag.
