Border Police and local police officers have arrested 30 people suspected of being involved in disturbances and stone-throwing during the period when the JNF was attempting to plant trees in the Negev last week.

In addition, a bus was stopped in the south of the country and found to contain 28 people in Israel illegally. Police also discovered 50 kilograms of cannabis already packaged and ready to be distributed. 120 boxes of cigarettes that had been smuggled into the country were also confiscated, and three people were arrested for attacking police officers.
