A young Arab man was arrested Wednesday near Beit Hanassi in Jerusalem after he impersonated an IDF soldier. During his interrogation police discovered that he had been sleeping in a nearby construction site, where he had stashed a second uniform, as well as a toy gun and an identity card that was suspected to be fake. The man was apprehended by a force of border policemen whose suspicion was aroused by the man, Army Radio reported. They approached him and engaged him in conversation, arresting him after he exhibited signs of discomposure. Police were interrogating the man in order to discover whether he was planning to carry out a terror attack or engage in other criminal activity.
