Palestinian infiltrator from Gaza was carrying grenade

JERUSALEM (JTA) — A Palestinian man from Gaza caught by security forces after breaching the security fence and illegally entering Israel was discovered to be carrying a fragmentation grenade.

He was taken for questioning after being caught shortly after entering Israel on Tuesday morning, according to reports.
