Armed terrorist arrested after infiltrating Negev community

A terrorist armed with a hand grenade was arrested on Sunday after infiltrating into an area between the communities of Yated and Sdei Abraham in the north-western Negev. He was caught by a patrolman near one of the communities. IDF forces that were dispatched to the area arrested him and transferred him to questioning. No injuries were reported in the incident.


A preliminary investigation indicates that the terrorist had infiltrated into Israel by crossing the border fence in the Southern Gaza Strip earlier Saturday night. The IDF Spokesperson said that circumstances of the incident were still being investigated. (Yoav Zitun)
