An Israeli civilian crossed into the Gaza Strip near the southern community of Be’eri yesterday, in circumstances still under investigation, the IDF says.

The IDF says the civilian was spotted by soldiers monitoring surveillance cameras, who dispatched troops to the scene but apparently arrived too late because a short while later, the civilian returned on his own to Israel where he was then detained by troops.

Authorities are still investigating why he crossed into Gaza.
