The IDF has captured the two terrorists who infiltrated Israel by crossing the Gaza border fence north of Kissufim Saturday night. IDF forces surrounded the area after the infiltrators were seen in Israeli territory. Soldiers fired at the suspects before apprehending them 1km from the border. The terrorists were apparently armed and wearing vests. Security forces have not yet found the terrorists' weapons, and the purpose of the infiltration is still unclear. The terror alert in the area has been lifted. Residents of Nir Oz, Re'im, Nirim, Kissufim, and Ein Hashlosha were ordered to stay indoors when the infiltrators were spotted.
