A suspect arrested by IDF soldiers on Friday morning after he crossed the border fence in northern Gaza is a member of the Hamas terrorist organization, it was cleared for publication on Friday evening.

No weapons were found in his possession.

Last Saturday, IDF fighter jets targeted two Hamas underground structures in the Gaza Strip.

The air strike was in retaliation for a rocket that was launched from Gaza towards Israeli territory.

The rocket that was fired from Gaza exploded in an open area without causing physical injuries or damage.

Last Friday, IDF aircraft targeted two Hamas military posts following violent riots on the Gaza border, in which 13,000 Gazan rioters threw grenades and explosives.
