Israelis in towns and villages near the Gaza frontier have been instructed by security forces to remain in their homes after suspected unlawful infiltration by Palestinians was reported early Saturday morning.

Authorities closed off a major highway, Route 232, leading in and out of the Eshkol regional council.

Security services are now conducting a sweep of the area in search of undocumented Palestinians.
