Early Sunday morning an Arab terrorist armed with a grenade was captured on the outskirts of the town of Yated, in the western Negev, according to a Walla report.
Yated is located just south-east of the Gaza Strip, in Israel’s south, also known as the Eshkol region.
The terrorist was captured by the town’s security forces, who were on patrol at the time. The terrorist had the grenade hidden on his person. After capturing him, the security team handed the terrorist over to the army.
Initial investigations indicate the terrorist crossed over from Gaza. The IDF is trying to learn how he crossed over without being detected.
