Police Sunday arrested a man suspected of breaking into a highly sensitive Air Force base two weeks ago after allegedly stealing a car, leading security forces on an hours-long manhunt.
They identify the suspect as a Palestinian national who had entered Israel illegally.
Alongside the Palestinian man, police arrested two Israeli citizens — a taxi driver from the Bedouin town of Arara and a resident of the desert town of Dimona, where the car theft allegedly took place — who are suspected of helping the man make his escape from the base.
