While Anonymous hackers haven’t had much success breaching Israel’s defenses, an Arab from Gaza has, according to a report in Yisrael Hayom.
The infiltrator crossed over from Gaza into Israel on Passover eve, and managed to make his way all the way to the southern city of Netivot.
A serious of technical errors with the fence and warning system, as well as the soldiers searching in the wrong direction and location, allowed the infiltrator to stroll right past Israel’s defenses.
The man was not armed, and it is not believed he crossed over to commit a terror attack.
The infiltrator actually hitchhiked from somewhere near the Gaza border with an unsuspecting Israeli who took him the rest of the way to Netivot.
The Palestinian from Gaza turned himself into the police later that evening.
The army is looking at this as a serious failure and is running a full investigation.
