Troops foil an attempt to smuggle marijuana into Israel from Egypt last night, the Israel Defense Forces says.

According to the IDF, soldiers seized some 31 kilograms (68 pounds) of hashish, estimated to be worth NIS 1.2 million ($345,000) near the border.

No arrests are made, as the suspects who hurled the package over the border, and those who arrived to pick it up, fled.

The drugs are taken by police for investigation.
