From the Times of Israel this afternoon (Sunday):
An 18-year-old Palestinian male armed with a knife and a pick was arrested Sunday near Kibbutz Alumim in the Sdot Negev Regional Council. A security coordinator from a local community caught the Palestinian about seven kilometers from the Gaza border fence, which he is believed to have crossed near Kibbutz Nahal Oz. According to Sdot Negev security coordinator Raphi Bibian, local security chiefs received an alert that there had been an infiltration from Gaza, and closed in on the intruder from three directions. The Palestinian man surrendered without a fight. [Times of Israel]

Those are not the things that happened. So this young man will be held in custody for a while and then freed. If he plays his cards right, he may yet get to fulfill the lethal ambitions that others in his world have for him.
Meanwhile those who believe Israel is engaged in "a war of genocide perpetrated against the Palestinian people", as Mahmoud Abbas, the PA president, called it before the UN General Assembly on Friday, will ignore such events. And those who depend on the mainstream news media for an understanding of life in the Arab/Israel conflict will continue to be oblivious to its realities.
