Forces stopped a small motor boat laden with weapons and ammunition in the Dead Sea at dawn. The act was the result of a special operation spanning months.
One of the detainees has a previous drug record.
Police say that Kalashnikov rifles are sold for approximately NIS 25,000 (roughly $ 7,300). "This is a unique and rare interception," police said. "We are still looking into the weapons' destination."
