Military Police launched an investigation against three combat soldiers on suspicion that they used a drug called "nice guy."
Earlier this week military investigators raided an IDF outpost and detained five soldiers, but two were later cleared of any suspicion. At least one of the soldiers admitted to using the drug.

Investigators suspect that one of the combat soldiers brought the drug to the outpost and distributed it among his comrades. They are also looking into the possibility that the soldiers had used the drug in the past during their army service.
The Military Prosecution may file indictments against the soldiers in the near future.

A military court recently sentenced two soldiers to 50 and 34 days in prison for attempting to smoke marijuana while patrolling the Gaza security fence.
