IOF arrests 3 Palestinians on Gaza borders
The Israeli occupation forces (IOF) arrested Wednesday afternoon three Palestinian young men for allegedly trying to infiltrate into the security border fence in the central Gaza Strip.
According to local sources, Israeli forces opened fire at the three unidentified citizens before their arrest. No casualties were reported.
They said that the soldiers took the youths to an unknown place after arresting them.
Infiltration from Gaza into 1948 occupied Palestine has decreased since the outbreak of Jerusalem Intifada, after being on the rise over the past year due to the high unemployment and poverty rates rocking the blockaded coastal enclave.
