Northern District Police have foiled a heroin smuggling attempt from Lebanon. Police said Friday morning that a parcel containing 15 kilograms of the drug was thrown over the border in the Metula area overnight Thursday, straight into the hands of two Yarka residents, who allegedly intended to distribute it across the country. Police arrested the two, along with an accomplice, and the three were remanded in custody until Thursday.
