Syrian infiltrator captured by police outside Majdal Shams

Police arrested a Syrian infiltrator on Monday in Majdal Shams who illegally crossed into Israel during Sunday's border disturbances.
The infiltrator was in a taxi driven by a Palestinian man from east Jerusalem, police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld told The Jerusalem Post. The taxi driver has also been arrested.
The Syrian, 34 "was trying to make his way south. He had no papers on him. He was arrested at a police checkpoint in southern Majdal Shams, and is being questioned at a police station," Rosenfeld added.
The man was not armed, Rosenfeld said.
Police in Majdal Shams are conducting house to house searches looking for Syrian-Palestinian infiltrators, and have set up road blocks around the city.
