Chief of Security of Gidonim Hills Arrested


The Coordinator for IDF Security in the Gidonim hills, near the town of Itamar was arrested today (Monday) by the Nationalist Crimes Investigation Unit for the Distrcit of Samaria and Judea after they discovered a large cache of military weapons in the home of its Coordinator with IDF Security.

A preliminary investigation revealed that the coordinator held no permit for the devices.  Sappers were called in to neutralize the explosives. Unit Commander, Udi Levy, said the explosives constituted a danger to the local residents.

"We also need to look into how military weaponry and equipment can be obtained with such ease by communities," Levy added.
