Security personnel at the crossing noticed that the car's back half was suspiciously weighed down and ordered the driver to stop the vehicle. She failed to heed the order, continuing to drive past the crossing.

The officers succeeded in stopping the vehicle, discovering that the woman had her three children in the car - a 23-year-old, a seven-year-old and a one-year-old baby.

When the officers opened the trunk they discovered the two Palestinian men attempting to enter Israel without documentation laying side-by-side.

According to the Defense Ministry, the woman admitted to smuggling the men in exchange for money. She was transferred to Ariel Police, along with her three daughters.

The two Palestinian men were also detained.
