An Eritrean national was indicted Wednesday for infiltrating an IDF base. According to the indictment, Djan Manna, 22, managed to make his way into the base, where he committed acts of vandalism and threatened soldiers and officers with a knife.


Once infiltrating the base, Manna went into the mess and started to wreak havoc – he threw objects and food, broke a computer, a TV and a window. When soldiers arrived at the scene, they saw Manna holding a knife and a stick and half naked.

The soldiers then locked the defendant in the mess and called the police. When the police arrived, Manna, who had been continually vandalizing the room, threatened them with the stick. Only when one of the officers shocked him with a taser gun did the officers manage to detain him.


According to the police, Manna was still frantic in the police car and during questioning, when he threatened his interpreter and got on a desk in the interrogation room and started to urinate.


The Petah Tikva Magistrates Court decided to leave him in custody for further questioning.
