Seven individuals in Beersheba were arrested on suspicion of operating a drug smuggling and money laundering ring on Monday morning.

Investigators conducted a six month investigation into the ring in Israel and abroad. The ring is suspected of importing large quantities of cocaine into Israel from Costa Rica and Bolivia.

The suspects will be brought to Beersheba Magistrate's Court later on Monday to have their remands extended.
