Six months of underground police work in Jerusalem led to a massive raid on Sunday night during which 24 suspects were arrested, four vehicles seized and a fake 10nis coin mold used to forge the currency captured, a police spokesperson said.
During the operation the agent was able to acquire three M-16 assault rifles, nine hand-guns, ammunition, and 10 kg of hash.
All of these items together were worth around half a million nis.
Since 2018 the police have used three undercover agents to combat criminal activities in Jerusalem with a special emphasis on halting weapons smuggling and profiteering from crime.
