Palestinian held for trying to forge Israeli ID card

A 19-year-old Palestinian man is held in Netanya after allegedly attempting to forge an Israeli citizen’s ID card.

The man enters the Interior Ministry office in the city on Monday, produces a damaged blue ID card and asked to replace it with a repaired and updated one.

Clerks in the office notice the mismatch between the man’s face and the photo on the ID and alert police, who arrive on the scene and arrest the Palestinian for attempted identity fraud and falsifying official documents.
