Police raided the compound of the Abu Latif family, in Rameh in the north of Israel, early Tuesday morning.
The raid was carried out in conjunction with border police, canine units and sappers. Police said they confiscated nine vehicles, NIS 150,000, guns, drugs and jewelry in the raid, YNet News reported.
Five men, including leaders of the family, were arrested on suspicion of murder or attempted murder. They are also suspected of weapons possession and drug trafficking and will be charged in the Nazareth Magistrate’s Court.
The Abu Latif family is a known crime family. In 2001, three family members were arrested for smuggling guns and hashish into Israel via Hezbollah agents in Lebanon.
