Three Palestinian Arabs on Friday evening tried to infiltrate into Israel from Gaza.
IDF soldiers who arrived at the scene captured the three. Upon searching the three suspects, the soldiers discovered that they were armed with knives.
The three were taken for further questioning.
Friday evening’s incident is the second time in 24 hours that Gazans have tried to enter Israel with weapons.
On Thursday evening, two terrorists from the Hamas stronghold breached into Israeli sovereign territory, where they were arrested.
The two were nabbed in the Eshkol Regional Council just outside of Gaza, adjacent to the kibbutzim of Sufa and Holit, after having broken through the security barrier.
Security forces discovered that the two were carrying three grenades as well as a knife and a screwdriver and took them away for questioning.
