Sack of drugs IDF

During Saturday night and the early hours of Sunday morning, IDF soldiers thwarted a drug-smuggling attempt estimated at 1.2 million shekels.

Soldiers patrolling the border area between Israel and Egypt spotted a number of suspects attempting to smuggle drugs into Israel from Egypt. Additional forces were dispatched to the scene, and soldiers succeeded in seizing a sack found to contain around 30 kilograms (almost 70 pounds) of drugs.

The contraband was transferred to Israel Police for further processing.
