Border Police units operating in the Modi’in region of central Israel were astonished on Friday to discover an attempt to illegally smuggle dozens of Palestinians into the country.

According to a police statement, 52 Palestinians were taken into custody after they were discovered crammed into vans near the town of Latrun.

Police grew suspicious of one particular vehicle - an Iveco van - driving along Route 3, as one of the rear tires ceased functioning due to the excessive weight of the inner contents.

When police pulled the van over, they found 26 undocumented Palestinians crammed into the back.
