The suspect was captured by Israeli security forces after he crossed the border into one of the neighborhoods in the Hof Ashkelon Regional Council.

He was transferred to interrogation, according to the Israeli army.

Previously, the Israel Defense Forces thought its own soldiers had caused the blaze after shooting a flare during the apprehension.

The new development comes as Hamas chief Yahya Sinwar announced at a protest near the border on Friday that the terrorist group has not come to any agreement with Israel.
