IDF Captures 3 Infiltrators on Gaza Border

3 October, 2019   |   3 weeks ago

IDF forces on Wednesday night captured three Arabs who infiltrated Israel from the Gaza Strip.

The IDF stated that its forces identified three suspects who crossed the perimeter fence in the southern Gaza Strip into Israeli territory. The troops who were alerted to the area surrounded and then and arrested the suspects.

No one was wounded in the incident.

Infiltration attempts on the border with the Strip happen several times a week, usually by Gazan Arabs seeking work in Israel. However, the Israeli forces treat each such incident as a potential terrorist attack.

In related news, IDF forces carrying out counter-terrorism operations throughout Judea and Samaria arrested 13 individuals suspected of involvement in terrorist activities and violent riots against civilians and Israeli forces.

In addition, IDF troops searched and seized illegal weapons in Shechem (Nablus).
