Two Israelis Enter Jericho


Two Israelis entered the Palestinian Authority (PA) city of Jericho near the Dead Sea by mistake on Thursday. The pair was evacuated by Palestinian Authority security forces in coordination with the Israeli Civil Adminstration for Judea and Samaria, and turned over to Israeli police for questioning.

The Spokesperson's Office of the Israel Defense Forces stressed once again that entry to Area A, under PA control, is illegal without prior coordination with the military. Enty to Area B, with more Israeli control,  is considered dangerous and not recommened.
