Police culminated investigations of the woman on Tuesday prior to her release.

The security alert in Nahariya was preceded Monday by a similar terror alert in southern Israel's Lachish region.

Authorities later located a suspect who was taken in for questioning. Initial investigations determined that the suspect had not managed to enter Israeli territory.

The security establishment later removed the alert and routine was reestablished.
