The Israeli army late on Saturday detained two Palestinians near a fence on the border between the Palestinian Gaza Strip and Israel.
Eyewitnesses told The Anadolu Agency that the Israeli army had detained the two Palestinians as they tried to cross the fence into Israel.

Every now and then, Israel announces the arrest of Palestinians who attempt to cross from the Gaza Strip into Israel in search for work.
Around 20 Palestinians have been arrested since October as they tried to cross from Gaza into Israel to search for jobs, Palestinian legal centers says.
Unemployment and poverty rates in the Gaza Strip have both exceeded 50 percent, according to the Palestinian Central Bureau of Statistics.
Gaza's labor union estimates that nearly 30,000 workers in the Gaza Strip are jobless due to Israel's recent offensive on the Gaza Strip in addition to nearly 170,000 who have lost their work because of the years-long Israeli blockade.
At least 2,160 Palestinians were killed and nearly 11,000 injured in a 51-day Israeli offensive on the Gaza Strip in July and August.
The offensive came to a halt on August 26 under an Egyptian-brokered cease-fire between Israel and Palestinian resistance factions.
