A terrorist armed with a grenade entered southern Israel from the Gaza Strip early on Sunday, and was apprehended by a security officer working for a local village.

The terrorist was found by a patrol officer between the villages of Yaded and Sde Avraham, army sources said. He is being questioned, and no further details are immediately available on the incident.

Earlier Sunday, the air force bombed four targets in Gaza in response to Palestinian rocket fire on southern Israel the previous day.

Meanwhile, the IDF conducted nine security raids in the West Bank and Jordan Valley overnight Sunday, arresting nine suspects, and targeting five Da'wa civilian Hamas outreach bodies.

"We're getting more and more evidence that Da'wa is linked to terrorist activities," a senior IDF source said. "You can see the direct link between the civilian activity and terrorism," he added.

During the raids, a man the army approached soldiers in Nablus, causing soldiers to open fire at him. The army later concluded that the man was mentally ill.
