A Palestinian was arrested Thursday after infiltrating into Israel from the Gaza Strip with an improvised explosive device on his person, the Israel Defense Forces said.

A similar incident occurred hours earlier, when the military said another Gazan crossed the border fence armed with a knife and was apprehended by soldiers who spotted him near the border fence.

In both cases, troops conducted a search and discovered the weapons, after which both suspects were taken for questioning, the army said.

The border breaches came amid a period of heightened tensions in the region of the coastal enclave.

Last Friday, two Palestinians, carrying a knife and a hand grenade, infiltrated into Israel from northern Gaza, prompting a large-scale call-up of security personnel in the area before they were eventually arrested.

Palestinians have been holding weekly border riots as part of what they call the "March of Return" since March 30, 2018.
