Hole in Samaria Security Fence Meters from IDF Position


An anonymous resident of the Elkana area warned, Sunday, of a breach in the Samaria (Shomron) security fence, where dozens of Arabs make their way illegally out of the Palestinian Authority-assigned area without an inspection, meters from an Israel Defense Forces position where there are inspections. Interviewed on Arutz Sheva's Hebrew journal, the civilian said he called a military situation room and was told the problem was known but there was not enough staffing to address the situation. The citizen said nobody knows what the Arabs are taking through the fence with them and hopes somebody wakes up before a tragedy occurs, when the IDF will find forces to watch the spot 24 hours a day.

The military said work on the fence is underway and it all known breaches are being dealt with immediately.
