2 Palestinian children detained after crossing Gaza border fence

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained two Palestinian children, on Friday, after they were caught crossing the border fence into Israel from the southern besieged Gaza Strip.

An Israeli army spokesperson said in statement that the Palestinian children were searched and that three knives were found in their possession.

The spokesperson added that the children are part of a recent increase of Palestinians youths attempting to cross into Israel to “escape the reality in Gaza.”

The two children were then taken in for questioning by Israeli security forces. However, their identity remained unknown.

Israeli forces regularly detain Palestinians attempting to cross into Israel from the besieged Gaza Strip, which has suffered under a nearly 12-year-long military blockade by Israel and Egypt.
