Israel Police and Shin bet arrested two Hamas operatives entering from Gaza on forged documents. The pair were arrested on January 7, however the information has only today been cleared for release.

After entering Israel, the pair escaped from hospital and traveled to Umm El Fahm in northern Israel, where they were arrested.

A source in the Shin Bet said, ""This is a serious incident that illustrates the cynical exploitation of Israel's willingness to meet the humanitarian needs of Gaza's residents, which could lead to a tightening of entry regulations, and ultimately harm the residents of the Gaza Strip."
