Police intercepted a boat traveling from Jordan to Israel on the Dead Sea overnight carrying two Bedouin-Palestinian men and ten Kalashnikov rifles.

The interception was part of a broader operation aimed at stopping arms smuggling from Jordan, Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said.

"The suspects are in their 40s and are being questioned," he added.

The identity of the intended recipients was not immediately known, police said.
