The Israeli citizen violated the border with Jordan and entered the territory of the Kingdom.
The incident occurred on Monday evening, June 26, in the arava desert in southern Israel, in an area where there is no border fence. Army observers saw the retreating man.
According to the press service of the IDF, the offender was detained by Jordanian security forces and returned to Israel.
Apparently, the Israelis crossed the border in error, astray. The IDF is investigating the incident, said the army press-service.
Recall, June 22 there has been a breach of the Israeli-Lebanese border in Upper Galilee. A family member of a soldier of the Army of South Lebanon (CADAL), who moved to Israel in 2000, entered the territory of Lebanon and surrendered to the Lebanese military.
