Two Israeli-Arab Drug-Smugglers caught spying for Hezbollah

JPost: The Shin Bet and Israel police revealed Tuesday the arrest of two brothers from the northern town of Ghajar who are suspected of compiling military intelligence on the IDF and handing it over to Hizbullah agents.

Sources in the Shin Bet told the Jerusalem Post that the two - known drug smugglers - were arrested while still setting up their network, and they had already made initial contacts with a Lebanese drug supplier nicnamed 'Abu Hassan', who works for the Hizbullah. The brothers were to supply Hizbullah with information on the IDF. In exchange, Hizbullah would provide them with drugs and clients.
