Six people were arrested on suspicion of shooting improvised firearms in a closed IDF firing zone in the south.

Five of the six suspects are minors.

Police said late Saturday that the civilians entered the shooting ranges of the Tzeelim training base to practice with their firearms.

A search of their car revealed two additional guns and a cache of bullets.

The six were taken into custody by the Ofakim Police.
