A 16 year old boy was arrested near the Kerem Shalom kibbutz recently in connection with a planned suicide attack against Israeli Jews.

According to Israeli Police, the Palestinian boy jumped over a border fence and walked for two days, from Gaza into Israel.

Israeli soldiers with the IDF’s Golani Brigade spotted the boy, with a large axe, as he approached a kibbutz, and arrested him.  He was taken to a hospital in Soroka for medical treatment, and it was during his time there that more information was gathered about his intentions.

    How does one just “jump” over “a” fence? I thought this was the most hi-tech, lowest penetration fence in the world. obviously not. If 50,000 Africans crossed illegally into Israel’s south, why can’t a couple thousand fence climbers from Gaza do the same? The IDF is not nearly doing enough to protect it’s country. Something is wrong with this story, or the author is incompetent in it’s reporting.

  • He is associated with a terrorist group: it is called ISLAM. He is following Mohammad’s example from Quarzah when he had 900 unarmed Jews decapitated. Musliims revere this event as their Auschwitz.
