FILE – In this July 31, 200 file photo, Palestinian Zakaria Zubeidi, then leader of the Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades militant group in the West Bank town of Jenin, holds a picture of Yasser Arafat, as he poses with other militants after they set the town’s Governorate on fire overnight. For nearly two decades, Zubeidi has been an object of fascination for Israelis and Palestinians alike, who have seen his progression from a child actor to a swaggering militant, to the scarred face of a West Bank theater promoting “cultural resistance” to Israeli occupation. In his latest act, he has emerged as one of Israel’s most wanted fugitives after tunneling out of a high-security prison on Monday, Sept. 6, 2021 with five other Palestinian militants.
