Man Arrested in Arms Smuggling

Security forces this weekend arrested a man who apparently had smuggled arms across the Jordanian border.

He was apprehended near Argaman, a moshav in the Jordan Valley that is close to the Jordanian border.

A cache of weapons, including some 30 revolvers, two rifles and a submachine gun, were discovered near the border fence.

Security forces discovered tracks of two people along the border fence. The tracks showed that one person returned to Jordan.
