    According to IDF surveillance, a group of smugglers tried to pass the drugs from Egypt to Israel in the area of the Faran Regional Brigade at night.

    The Israeli Defence Forces (IDF) have thwarted a drug-smuggling attempt at the Egyptian border.

    The military forces shared the details of the operation on Twitter. They said that several suspected smugglers were arrested when they were trying to smuggle drugs worth millions of shekels from Egypt. 

    With the help of the Maglan unit, which specialises in operating deep in the enemy territory, IDF fighters rushed to the scene and arrested five suspects, prevented smuggling, and seized dozens of bags of drugs.
