Twelve soldiers and non-commissioned IDF officers have been arrested in one of the the largest drug busts in military history, the military released for publication on Monday.

The 12 consist of five NCOs and seven soldiers, mostly Bedouin trackers, who were  arrested over the past two weeks for allegedly assisting Egyptian and Israeli drug smugglers in bypassing military ambushes and patrols along the Egyptian border.

Three civilians were also arrested in the operation, conducted together with the Israel Police.
