Three arrested for smuggling heroin into Israel from Jordan
Police say they have arrested three men trying to smuggle millions of shekels’ worth of heroin into Israel from Jordan.
The three suspects are residents of the southern Bedouin town of Segev Shalom.
They were stopped by security forces who saw them acting suspiciously near the border.
Police say the 35-kilogram (77 lbs) haul is worth some NIS 18 million ($4.8 million) on Israel’s streets.
