Police have arrested 24 residents from the Bedouin city of Rahat and surrounding towns on suspicions of weapons smuggling, fraud, and deception, Israel Radio reported Thursday. Among those arrested, 13 weapons were also confiscated.

The suspected were convicted after a security-company owner sold weapons to unqualified buyers, gave licenses to carry arms and issues false reports to the Interior Ministry that the buyers were employed as security guards.
