Security forces arrest cell for stealing IDF guns

August 29, 2006 09:55

The police and Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency), along with the military police, exposed a seven-member cell from Wadi Ara suspected of stealing nearly 60 weapons from soldiers in the Hadera and Zichron Ya'akov areas in the past few months. According to the allegations, the cell would follow soldiers who got off the train in Binyamina, and would then break into their houses to steal the guns. It was still unclear how many weapons had reached the hands of criminals, and how many terrorists had obtained. An indictment was to be brought against the men on Tuesday, officials said.
