Israeli army forces on Saturday detained two Palestinian youths near the border with the blockaded Gaza Strip, eyewitnesses have said.
Israeli border guards detained the youths as they approached the border fence with the intention of crossing into Israel, the eyewitnesses told Anadolu Agency.
The Israeli army has yet to comment on the report.
From time to time, Israel announces the arrest of Palestinians caught attempting to cross the border in hopes of finding work in the self-proclaimed Jewish state.
Since the beginning of this year, the Israeli army has detained 36 Palestinians near the Gaza border, according to Palestinian NGOs.
Gaza's Labor Union said recently that around 30,000 workers had lost their jobs due to last year's devastating Israeli military onslaught against the coastal enclave.
Along with killing almost 2,160 Palestinians – mostly civilians – and injuring more than 11,000, the Israeli attack also destroyed a large number of Gaza's factories and industrial facilities.
