IDF arrests five who illegally crossed Syrian border into Israel

IDF soldiers arrested five suspects Monday night between the Syria-Israel border, the IDF Spokesperson's Unit said.

Three suspects were spotted by IDF surveillance east of the security fence in an Israeli-controlled enclave in the area and were promptly arrested. 

Later, two more suspects crossed the border from Syria into Israel. However, Israeli troops nearby managed to arrest them.

These suspects were brought to interrogation and were returned to Syria on Tuesday.
