Five Israeli Druze citizens were indicted on Sunday for smuggling weapons from the West Bank into Israel.

The suspects are said to have contacted a Palestinian man from the West Bank and made a deal to purchase weapons from him, which they later intended to transfer to an unidentified Israeli Arab from Shfaram.

They were caught by Israeli authorities after arriving at a checkpoint on Highway 6 with weapons in their vehicle.
