Syrian arrested after crossing border into Israel

A Syrian national was arrested last night after he crossed the border near Mount Hermon, the army says.

He reportedly made it several kilometers into Israel before he was picked up by Israeli forces.

The army says the man appears to suffer from a mental illness.

He has been handed over to the Shin Bet security service for questioning.
