Two men from the southern Gaza Strip were arrested after attempting to sneak into Israel, the IDF reported.

The two men were unarmed and transferred two security forces for questioning.

The Gaza Strip is ruled by the Hamas terrorist organization. The enclave suffers from water and electricity shortages. The Palestinian Authority in Judea and Samaria, which had been paying for Gaza's electricity, had asked Israel to reduce the electricity supply.

Israel has begun construction of an underground wall along its border with Gaza to prevent the construction of tunnels which are used to smuggle terrorists into Israel to carry out terror attacks and kidnapping attempts.
