IDF Soldiers Foil 2 Weapons Smuggling Attempts

The “Taoz” Battalion of the Military Police was able to foil two attempts in two days by Palestinian Authority Arabs to smuggle weapons into Israel.

The first incident occurred on Tuesday evening, when soldiers from the battalion located an air gun, a gas grenade, a number of knives and a stun gun in an Arab vehicle at the Baka checkpoint.

The second incident occurred on Wednesday night, when a PA Arab arrived at the Bekaot checkpoint. The man’s suspicious behavior prompted the soldiers to search him and, upon doing so, they found an M-16 full of bullets, as well as a knife.
