Search for PA Resident Illegally in Ra'anana

A Palestinian Authority resident without a permit to be in another part of Israel was arrested by police and a security patrol, Thursday afternoon in Ra'anana, northeast of Tel Aviv. Although he was handcuffed, he escaped from a community-police vehicle at the Ra'anana Junction while en route to a police station.

Large numbers of security forces were summoned to search for him. The Ra'anan Junction is not far from the 1949 cease-fire line and the western Samarian (Shomron) Palestinian Authority city of Kalkilye.
