Border police forces arrested 823 illegal Palestinian workers nationwide overnight in addition to five employers and four drivers. Among those arrested, four were wanted by security forces while three illegally entered the country from Egypt. On Wednesday, Internal Security Minister Avi Dichter told the cabinet that preventing infiltration through the porous Egyptian border was a top security priority. He called on the international community to assist in the mission if Egypt was either unwilling or incapable of doing so.
