Two Palestinian young men, on Thursday, were detained by Israeli forces after crossing Gaza borders into Israel, the Palestinian Information Center reported.

An Israeli army spokesman alleged that the youths were in possession of a knife and a hand grenade, and they were taken for questioning.

The army announced that an unarmed Palestinian youth was captured on Wednesday night, as he attempted to cross the Gaza borders into Israel, Palestinian territories that became the state of Israel in 1948.

The Israeli occupation army announced the arrest of the two youths, for crossing the security fence separating the besieged Gaza Strip from Israel, the Jerusalem Press reported.

The occupation army alleged that the youths crossed the border and threw an immobilized ‘grenade’ that did not explode, and that the Israeli forces fired live ammunition at the young men.

The army spokesman stated that they “were taken for investigation by the security forces,” and denied any injuries.

In the southern besieged Gaza Strip, Israeli bulldozers infiltrated 100 meters into the besieged enclave, on Thursday morning, leveling Palestinian-owned land, as army jeeps and armored vehicles provided cover, according to PIC reporter.
