Tuesday night, Palestinians Authority (PA) Arabs infiltrated the community of Einav in Northern Samaria (Shomron).

Initial findings suggest the infiltrators had climbed over a fence. The PA Arabs were caught by soldiers of the Netzah Yehuda (Nahal Hareidi) Brigade, stationed in the region.

When initial reports of the infiltration were reported residents of the community were immediately called to remain in their homes as soldiers along with the community's own security patrol conducted a sweeping search of the area, arresting the infiltrators.

The IDF has warned residents of Judea and Samaria to be extra vigilant in light of increased threat of terror attacks in recent days.

Ten days ago, a PA Arab terrorist infiltrated the community of Psagot near to El Bira, and shot nine year old girl Noam Glick at close range in the neck.

Last Thursday night, Seraya Opher a retired senior IDF officer was brutally murdered by two PA Arabs from the town of Kfar el-Bireh. Security forces have made five arrests and are continuing to investigate the event.
