(August 13, 2019 / JNS) Israeli troops on Monday arrested an armed Palestinian man attempting to infiltrate into Israel from the Gaza Strip, according to the IDF.
“A short time ago, IDF soldiers arrested a suspect crossing the security fence into Israeli territory from the Gaza Strip in the south,” the IDF said in a statement on social media. “The suspect was captured and found carrying a knife along with two bullets.”
The attempted breach marked the third time in a single week that Israeli forces have thwarted infiltration attempts from the coastal enclave.
On Saturday, four heavily armed men were killed attempting to enter Israel from southern Gaza.
Less than a day later, IDF shot and killed a terrorist who opened fire on troops near the fence.
