Police say they arrested 314 Palestinians who were illegally residing in Israel over the weekend in a crackdown following last week’s terror attack in Elad.

The suspects in that attack were a pair of Palestinian workers who crossed into Israel from the West Bank illegally through a hole in the security barrier.

In addition to the 314, roughly 40 others were arrested for illegally employing, transporting and providing lodging to illegal workers, police say.
