4 Arabs suspected of selling weapons to Palestinians

Undercover police investigation leads to four Israeli Arabs who allegedly deal in weapons, sold them to Palestinian criminals

Central District Police arrested four Israeli Arabs suspected of weapons dealing and selling them to Palestinian criminals. The Ramla Magistrates' Court extended the remand of the four men by seven days on Wednesday.


Two of the suspects are residents of Ramla, one is from Umm al-Fahm, and another is from Tayibe. Police investigators tracked the suspects after they learned that they had trafficked a large quantity of weapons.


The police's initial estimate was that the weapons were destined for criminal elements. With continued investigation, they learned that the suspects are in contact with residents of the Palestinian Authority.


A decision was made on Wednesday to go public with the investigation. Police investigators arrived in court with boxes of binders containing all the evidence collected against the suspects.


The suspects' legal team, Attorney Giora Zilberstein and Attorney Shukri Abu Tabiq denied the allegations made against their clients: "The police arrested our clients a number of times in the past, raided their homes, and never found weapons. They flatly deny the allegations."
