Border Police officers today (Monday) arrested a 25-year-old resident of the Israeli Arab city of Sakhnin on suspicion of illegally smuggling Palestinian Arabs into Israel.

During a search of the suspect's vehicle, the officers found ten residents of the Palestinian Authority and Jordan who were hidden behind a false wall in the back of the vehicle. The false wall was allegedly placed for the purpose of carrying out illegal smuggling.

The vehicle was seized and seven of the illegal infiltrators were taken back to the Palestinian Authority. Three of the infiltrators were arrested, and they will be brought to court tomorrow for a hearing on the extension of their detention.

The Israeli driver of the vehicle will also receive a hearing on the extension of his detention tomorrow.
