Reports Sunday morning said that five terrorists who attempted to infiltrate from Gaza into Israel were arrested. The five had apparently found a way through the Gaza security fence. They were nabbed by IDF soldiers and are being questioned by security forces.

In Yerushalayim early Sunday morning, security forces arrested a 19-year-old Arab who was attempting to damage a security camera. The camera was located in a neighborhood in the eastern part of the city. The suspect was arrested and questioned. It is not clear why he wanted to destroy the camera, police said.

Overnight Motzoei Shabbos, security officials said they arrested nine wanted security suspects in other areas in Yehudah and Shomron. The suspects were wanted for participating in rioting and throwing stones and firebombs that endangered Israeli civilians and IDF soldiers. Several of the suspects were also charged with belonging to Hamas. All were being questioned on their activities by security forces.
