With the help of a police traffic helicopter, border police captured three Palestinians who had infiltrated into Israel Sunday afternoon.
The traffic helicopter was operating in the south of Israel when it spotted suspicious activity in the Carmon woods near the Givati Junction.
Following the sighting, the helicopter directed forces on the ground to the area. The suspects fled the area, but were caught soon after.
In the initial investigation, police determined that the suspects were residents of Gaza, and were in Israel illegally. Police also found near their camp in the woods a stolen vehicle with stolen equipment which included IDF uniforms.
