New maritime security barrier defending Zikim Beach from Gaza infiltration

The IDF had a busy day on Sunday.

Gaza-based terrorists fired a mortar on Sunday at Israeli territory. The projectile exploded in an open space, causing no injuries or damage. The IDF did not respond to the attack.


A Gazan attempted to cross into Israel from the Gaza Strip through the sea. He was captured at the Zikim beach, unarmed. He told the Israeli Navy forces that he had attempted to enter Israel to find work. They saved him from drowning.

IDF forces carrying out counter-terrorism operation throughout Judea and Samaria on Sunday night arrested 22 wanted terrorists suspected of involvement in terrorist activities and violent disturbances against civilians and security forces. The suspects were taken for questioning.

Israeli forces carrying out a search to find illegal weapons in the Arab village of Kafr Aqeb in the area of the Binyamin Regional Brigade seized a sniper’s weapon and improvised weapons.

In addition, forces operating in the city of Hebron seized tens of thousands of shekels meant to funds terrorism.
