Two Arabs and two Bedouins from the Haifa area were arrested three weeks ago on suspicion of spying for Syria and aiding infiltrators, officials reported today.

After their arrest, police found an arms cache in a field near Haifa. The collection included four hand grenades, a machinegun of the type used by infiltrators and several hundred rounds of ammunition.
