The Israeli army has foiled a weapons smuggling attempt on the border with Lebanon and is investigating Hezbollah’s involvement, the army spokesman said on Saturday.

Spokesman Avichay Adraee said a total of 43 weapons, including handguns, were seized by IDF soldiers who were patrolling the Ghajar village area. The soldiers reportedly spotted the suspects transporting bags from Lebanon into Israeli territory.

The weapons seized are valued at over $800,000, according to the spokesman.

“The IDF is investigating the possibility of Hezbollah aiding in the smuggling attempt and investigating with police the identity of the suspects involved,” Adraee said in a Twitter thread.

He also said the army will continue fighting drug and weapons smuggling attempts across the Lebanese border.
