Israel nabs 2 unarmed Palestinian who crossed Gaza fence

Israeli troops picked up two unarmed Palestinians who crossed the Gaza security fence and entered Israeli territory, the army says.

The suspects were arrested shortly after they crossed into southern Israel, near the Eshkol region. They were handed over to the Shin Bet security service for questioning.

According to the army, they were not in possession of weapons.

Earlier reports indicate that three Palestinians had infiltrated into Israeli territory, but an army spokesperson says he is only aware of two.
