Security forces in Taba arrested an Israeli citizen who they claim, infiltrated Taba from Eilat via the border. The Palestinian Maan news agency reported Sunday that the man is a resident of Tel Aviv who was not in possession of a passport or any identification.
During the investigation, the man admitted that he was trying to reach the gravesite of Rabbi Yaakov Abuhatzeira in the Egyptian city of Damanhur and that he intended to immigrate to Morocco. He was later transferred to the Egyptian prosecutor's office for questioning. (Roi Kais)
