Prison guards foiled a cellular phone smuggling attempt at the Shikma Prison on Wednesday.
A prisoner tried to sneak the device into the prison in his five-year-old brother's pants.
The boy said that he was told to ask if he could hug his incarcerated brother, and at that point pass the phone to the man.
As a result, prison guards were instructed to no longer allow prisoners to hug family members.
