Drug-Smuggling Attempt Foiled by IDF Soldiers in Northern Galilee
In the northern border of the Galilee region, IDF soldiers thwarted an attempt to smuggle illegal drugs into Israel yesterday evening.
The soldiers identified two suspects burying unknown objects in the ground and then converged with two additional suspects. After the soldiers arrested the suspects, they discovered 11 drug-filled bags. The suspects and the evidence were then transferred to the Israeli Police.
The Israel Defense Forces and the Israeli Police routinely carry out joint activity on Israel’s northern border in order to prevent any and all attempts to infiltrate into Israel and to harm Israel’s citizens and soldiers.
