Gil Aharonovitch, the Hevel Shalom Security Coordinator, told IDF Radio about the infiltration of a terrorist armed with a hand grenade in to Israel, and criticized the decision to significantly reduce the presence of security coordinators in communities near the security fence.
“The event began in the morning. I received a phone call from patrollers out on a night watch. I quickly ran and deployed IDF forces. I saw a suspicious man, and by the time I arrived the patrollers had already taken the grenade from the terrorist and from there we went on to find out where he had crossed over from,” Aharonovitch said.
