The Brazilian newspaper O Globo reported that a 23-year-old Israeli is one of those arrested in a raid conducted yesterday (Friday) in São Paulo. According to the report, the suspects were arrested with a total of 700 kilograms of cocaine. The Israeli Foreign Ministry has yet to confirm the report.

According to the report from Brazil, the arrests were made possible thanks to cooperation between Brazilian authorities and law enforcement authorities in Israel. The gang that was arrested was apparently headed by a 34-year-old Brazilian in whose apartment 500 kilograms of cocaine were discovered.

Another two suspects, both Nigerian citizens, were arrested at the airport in Brazil carrying hundreds of kilograms of the dangerous drug.
