After the hearing, the hacker, along with four other detainees, was taken to the so-called "Russian Compound," an interrogation and detention center in Jerusalem's Old City.
The hacker was supposed to be temporary detained there until being transferred to Nitzan Prison & Detention Center in Ramallah, where he is imprisoned.
The vehicle stopped at the entrance to the detention center at around 12:30, when the hacker apparently succeeded in opening one of his leg shackles with an improvised lock pick and broke out of the vehicle.
On his way out, the hacker pushed one of the jailers, injuring him, and fled.
Two Israel Prison Service officers immediately gave chase and managed to tackle and drag him back to the vehicle.
The suspect is currently on trial for making hoax bomb threats against Jewish community centers in the United States, Australia, New Zealand and Israel for several months.
