Troops foil an attempt to smuggle drugs into Israel from Egypt this morning, the Israel Defense Forces says.
According to the Israeli military, soldiers monitoring surveillance cameras spotted the drug-smuggling attempt and dispatched troops to the scene.
Some 20 kilograms (44 pounds) of an unnamed drug, estimated to be worth NIS 800,000 ($234,000), were seized, the IDF says.
No one was arrested in the incident, according to the army.
