Daoud Al-Zobeidi, brother of notorious terrorist Zakaria Al-Zobeidi, who was injured during a clash with Israeli forces in the West Bank on Friday morning, was taken to Rambam Medical Center in Haifa after his condition deteriorated.

A Red Cross official told the Ynet news site that the director of Jenin Hospital, Muhammad Abu Ghali, had requested the transfer of al-Zubaidi in an attempt to save his life.

The report indicated that Al-Zubaidi was in critical condition after being shot in the stomach.

Israel reportedly accepted the request and Al-Zubaidi was taken by Palestinian ambulance to the Al-Jalama-Jilboa crossing, where he was transferred to an Israeli ambulance and taken to Haifa Hospital.

It was reported that Daoud Al-Zubaidi, 40, was among 13 Palestinian militants who were wounded Friday in a violent exchange of fire with Israeli forces near Jenin and in the West Bank during an arrest operation carried out by the special forces of the police and the Israeli army.

Israel has recently intensified its operations in the West Bank and especially in the Jenin area, where many of the terrorists who were behind the recent deadly attacks in Israel were.

David’s brother, Zakaria Zubeidi, is a convicted terrorist leader who last year escaped from Gilboa prison for a week before being arrested again.

Six prisoners Five of them from the Palestinian Islamic Jihad movement, along with the leader of Fatah al-Zubaidi – escaped from prison on September 6, heading outside through the drainage system in their cell and an empty space under the prison.

Four of the prisoners, including al-Zubaidi, were captured in northern Israel during the first week, but two others made their way to the northern West Bank city of Jenin and hid there until their arrest on September 19.

The alleged mastermind of the jailbreak, Mahmoud Al-Aredah, told investigators that Al-Zubaidi was added to the prison escape plan at the end, hoping that his connections to the Palestinian Authority would help protect them.
