Israel Police on Tuesday arrested eight suspects on suspicion of importing drugs from South America.

The suspects are aged 30 to 69, and hail from all over Israel.

The arrests occurred after a lengthy undercover investigation during which Israel Police worked together with foreign police forces and Israel's Customs Authority.

According to reports, the eight are suspected of planning to import hundreds of kilograms of cocoaine from South America.

They will be brought on Wednesday to Tel Aviv's Magistrates Court, where their arrests will be extended.
