Palestinians Overpower Terrorists At Erez Crossing

The JTA reports, “Palestinian workers waiting to enter Israel from the Gaza Strip reportedly beat and overpowered two terrorists planning to carry out an attack. An inquiry conducted recently by the Defense Ministry with the help of Palestinian officials found that, a few days after a Jan. 14 suicide bombing at the Erez crossing, Palestinian workers waiting to enter Israel noticed two Palestinian youths carrying weapons under their clothing trying to enter the area. The workers confronted them, overpowered them, beat them and then handed them over to Palestinian Authority policemen. It’s not clear what happened to the youths after that, Ha’aretz reported. Some 5,000-10,000 Palestinians enter Israel for work each day, but attacks at the crossing points sometimes cause Israel to close the border.”
