Eleven soldiers from the haredi nahal battalion "Netsah Yehuda" were arrested on suspicion of cannabis use, reported Israel Radio.

One of the soldiers was also caught with a stun grenade and machine gun bullets. It is suspected that the soldiers used drugs once in the base and other times during vacations.

Military police conducted a covert investigation into the affair about a year ago, after the battalion's commanders grew suspicious. An army source said that if the soldiers are convicted, they will not return to serve as fighters.
