BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained four Palestinians for allegedly attempting to cross into Israel via the security fence in the northern besieged Gaza Strip, on Saturday.

The spokesperson of the Israeli army said that four people attempted to cross the Israeli security fence in the northern Gaza Strip; the four detainees were taken by Israeli intelligence services for interrogation.

The identities of the detainees were not immediately identified.

The Israeli army added that a knife and an ax were found on the detainees.

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