Bedouin trackers in the Israeli army help smuggle nearly 50 tons of marijuana from Egypt each year, Israeli police said. In a report released last Friday, police claim that the trackers either help the smugglers directly or turn a blind eye to the trade because their clans are related. The Israeli army has not commented on the report.
