Three unarmed Palestinians were arrested on the Israeli side of the Gaza border on Saturday morning, dispelling concerns that terrorists breached the border fence.

Residents of the border-adjacent Eshkol Regional Council were instructed to remain at home earlier in the day after footprints were found near the border fence. Road 232 in was closed to traffic as security forces searched the area.
