Arab illegal infiltrators were found hiding inside a cement mixer earlier this week.

Two police patrolmen from the Sderot station, Uri Kasai and Rami Cohen, were looking for illegal infiltrators when they reached a construction site at an Israel Railways station near Sderot.

Illegal Arab workers who were indeed staying at the site noticed the police and began to run away. The policemen gave chase and were combing the area when they heard a strange noise from a cement mixer that was parked at the side of the road, its engine off.

The police men mounted the cement truck and opened the cement tank cover, uncertain of what they were about to see.

They found two workers from Hevron, hiding from them.

The two were arrested and taken to the local police station for interrogation. A computerized identification device found that the two had previously been convicted of illegally staying in Israel.
