Over 800 officers from the Central District carried out raids across central Israel on Tuesday morning, arresting 103 suspects as part of a large-scale operation against stolen property and drug gangs in the district.

Code-named “Double Moon”, the operation is one of the biggest single sweeps carried out by Israel Police in recent years.

Central District YAMAR Commander Yigal Ben-Shalom, who commanded the operation, said that the raids were carried out after a ten-month undercover sting, in which two YAMAR agents penetrated gangs in the Sharon and the Shfela regions.

Ben-Shalom said the agents mainly focused on bringing down gangs who carried out burglaries “because these are crimes that very much affect the day-to-day life of citizens across the district.”
