Israeli security forces arrest two Syrian men who attempted to smuggle drugs into Israel earlier today.
The Israel Defense Forces says soldiers monitoring surveillance cameras spotted the two suspects close to the border fence near the northern Druze town of Majdal Shams.
Soldiers and police officers dispatched to the scene arrested the pair, and found them to be carrying 21 kilograms (46 pounds) of hashish.
The Syrians, aged 30 and 33, are to be brought before a court tomorrow to extend their remand, police say.
Incidents of drug smuggling on the border with Syria are thought to be relatively rare.
