The suspects are believed to be illegal migrant workers.

Local residents reported the firing of flares in the border area during the overnight searches.

Last week, IDF observation troops intercepted an attempt to smuggle narcotics and firearms into Israel from Lebanon, near the small Israeli community of Mattat. The suspects were caught with 15 firearms, 36 kilograms of drugs and dozens of cartridges, all worth around 2 million shekels (about $615,000), according to the military.
