IDF forces arrested two suspects who were seen crossing the border into Israel from Gaza on Saturday. When the soldiers searched the suspects, they found a knife.

The suspects were apprehended by the IDF and then handed over to the security forces for questioning.

As reported previously by JerusalemOnline, Hamas has begun to allocate more of its budget toward civilian causes and much less toward terrorist activities. The change came after Israel complied with Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas’ request to reduce Gaza’s power supply even further.
