Two terrorists from the Hamas stronghold of Gaza breached into Israeli sovereign territory on Thursday night, 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.
After being located the two claimed to be armed with fragmentation grenades.
However, after IDF engineering corps of the Yahalom Unit arrived to deal with the grenades a body check was performed, revealing that they in fact did not have any explosives.
Apparently the statement was meant to threaten and deter the Israeli forces.
After the incident various searches were conducted to ensure that no other terrorists had breached Israeli territory from Gaza.
