תיעוד של המחבלים שחדרו היום לשטח ישראל והציתו כלי הנדסי שפועל לבניית המכשול בגבול הרצועה. כאמור כח צה״ל שהוקפץ למקום הבריח אותם חזרה לרצועה. השריפה כובתה. לא נגרם נזק ממשי. במקום נמצאו סכינים, בנזין וכאפייה.

UN blasts Israel’s policy towards the illegal infiltrators, complaining that they shouldn’t be detained & their refugee requests need to be considered.
By Elad Benari
The United Nations on Sunday night criticized Israel’s policy towards illegal immigrants, as thousands of them protested in Tel Aviv, demanding that Israel recognize them as refugees and grant them asylum.
The UN’s High Commissioner for Human Rights (UNHCR) released a statement in which it accused Israel of “sowing fear and chaos” among the illegal aliens who, it said, should be referred to as “asylum seekers” and not “infiltrators”.
“We demand that the government examine the asylum requests of the foreigners, and stop the large-scale arrests in south Tel Aviv,” said the UN agency, adding that while it supported the holding facility for infiltrators in southern Israel, it was not acceptable in its present form as the agency deemed it to be a long-term detention center.
