Dozens of firearms were stolen a week and a half ago from an IDF base near Kibbutz Hatzor. The cache of stolen weapons included 41 M-16 assault rifles and seven grenade launchers. A special team was assembled by the Military Police to investigate the disappearance of the weapons. Soldiers serving on the base were being investigated first. OC Central Command Maj.-Gen. Yair Naveh ordered an investigation opened into the incident, to be headed by a colonel from the command. He will investigate how the firearms were stolen from a guarded military installation.
