An illegal Palestinian worker was arrested on Thursday on suspicion of trying to steal a tractor from Moshav Elishma. Police initially spotted the man driving the tractor in the village, and when they called for him to stop, he fled the scene. He was eventually tracked down and arrested in Netanya. During his interrogation, the suspect claimed that he worked in the Moshav, and was driving the tractor with the permission of his employer.
