April 13, 2015 10:22

An IDF soldier was caught selling three explosive bricks with fuses, ready-to-use by the highest bidder, police said Monday as a months-long undercover weapons and drugs investigation in the south went public.

The soldier, aged 19, is one of 15 suspects arrested on Monday, following three months in which an undercover police agent bought drugs and firearms from a group of suspects in Beersheba.

Police said that the soldier both stole and sold the explosives, and had recently been discharged by the IDF, though they did not specify why.
