Negev subdistrict police have arrested nearly two-dozen suspects on suspicion of large-scale drug dealing across Israel.

The case includes a total of 21 suspects so far, who police say are being held on suspicion of selling cocaine, methamphetamines, LSD, hash and marijuana across the country.

During the arrests police said they also seized seven cars, which have been impounded.

The arrests were made after what police described as an undercover operation by six police agents who spent months collecting evidence against the alleged dealers.

On Sunday the case went public when police announced the arrests have been made.

They added that the suspects who have been arrested are believed to be on the wholesale level of the drug trade, and are not street-level dealers, as opposed to previous high-profile drug investigations.
