Two M-16's and an airsoft gun along with 15 magazines and hundreds of bullets were found after a Palestinian family with young children in the car was stopped at the A'Zaim checkpoint near Jerusalem.
The car was stopped after the driver raised the suspicion of Israeli Border Police. The driver's wife, young daughter and days-old son were also in the car.
After a quick investigation, the police asked the driver to open the trunk, where they found a suitcase filled with the weapons and ammunition, alongside clothes and personal items.
Police arrested two suspects in their twenties from the Palestinian town 'Anata next to Jerusalem for further interrogation.
The weapons were intended for terrorists and criminals within Israel, according to Israel Police.
