Israel’s military and domestic security service jointly disclosed that “in recent months, Iranian agents have been attempting to smuggle weapons, including advanced arms originating from Iran, into Judea and Samaria with the intention of carrying out terror acts against Israel”. The Shin Bet listed what it described as a “significant” array of seized weapons, and said it would “continue to carry out active measures… to monitor and thwart any activity that endangers the security of the State of Israel and its citizens, to expose and harm the Iranians’ effort to carry out terror activities within Israel’s territory and… work to bring those involved to justice”.
