IDF Comes Down on the 'Illegal Transport' Business


The Yehuda Brigade conducted a comprehensive night operation which resulted in the arrest of 11 drivers who unlawfully transport dozens illegals into Israel on a daily basis. The arrests were made as a result of co-operation between the Yehuda Brigade, the Sting Unit and the Hevron police.

The IDF website reports that they were able to accomplish what they did based on long-term intelligence-gathering about the smuggling operation. Their target had been the Arab city of Dahariya, which is a center of the illegal transport business.
