IDF stops Gaza border infiltration, Palestinian armed with knife arrested

The IDF stopped an attempted infiltration by a Palestinian armed with a knife at the perimeter fence of the southern Gaza Strip early on Monday morning.
"The suspect was interrogated by security forces," the IDF
said in a statement, "a knife apparently belonging to a suspect was also found on him."
This comes just a day after the Defense Ministry announced the that it had begun building a smart fence along the Gaza perimeter to stop infiltrations from taking place.
The new barrier will be 65 kilometers long, stretching along the route of the border from the new sea barrier near Zikim beach in the north to Kerem Shalom crossing in the south. Made from galvanized steel, it will weigh about 20,000 tons and will reach a height of about six meters.
