IDF troops arrested on Saturday two suspects who attempted to infiltrate Israeli territory from the Gaza Strip, Israeli media reported.
The suspects were carrying a bag containing hand grenades when arrested.
They were taken in for interrogation by Israel’s security services.
On Thursday, a Palestinian suspect was shot and killed after approaching the Gaza border fence.
Following the incident, the IDF said that the suspect was accompanied by other men and was acting in a suspicious way. The suspect was “digging in the ground while carrying a suspicious bag,” an IDF statement read.
IDF troops opened fire and killed the suspect.
He was later identified by Gaza health officials as 40-year-old Mohammad Abd al-Karim Abu Ammar.
Palestinian media later reported that he was walking near the border while bird hunting.
