(IsraelNN.com) Border policemen arrested approximately 1,000 Arab residents of Palestinian Authority-controlled cities over the weekend. The PA residents were arrested for entering Israeli-controlled areas illegally. 320 of them were detained for questioning. The rest were returned to PA-controlled areas.
Police also arrested 20 Israeli citizens who had helped the PA Arabs to infiltrate Israeli cities.
Police forces are on high alert due to the Purim holiday. There has been a major increase in manpower that will last until Monday night, and police are being particularly vigilant against potential terrorist attacks by PA residents.
