30 firearms stolen from IDF base in south

Approximately 30 guns are found to have been stolen from a base in southern Israel today, the army says.

The head of the IDF’s Southern Command, Maj. Gen. Eyal Zamir, appoints a colonel to investigate the incident. The Military Police launches its own investigation into the incident.

It is not immediately clear from the IDF report whether the guns were stolen on Sunday or whether their theft is only discovered today.

As the case is under investigation, the details of the theft, including which base is involved, are not made public.
