The Kochav Yaakov defense team were alerted Monday morning when some 20 PA Arabs congregated around the town’s fence, discovering that five had already infiltrated the town. They engaged the terrorists in hot pursuit, preventing them from more damage than they had already achieved by blocking a road with rocks and setting fire to an olive tree.

A 16-year old infiltrator was arrested with a lighter and cutting tools, and was transferred to Binyamin police for interrogation.
