      Gaza Resident Swims to Ashkelon

      The Israel Defense Forces and police arrested a Gaza resident, Sunday evening, after he swam from the Hamas-controlled area to Ashkelon. The Arab was in a state of exhaustion and received medical treatment from a Magen David Adom crew.

      Security services are investigating if it was a simple case of illegal exit from the Palestinian Authority-assigned area or whether the Arab was gathering intelligence for an attack.
