A 29-year old 'Israeli-Arab' serving in the IDF as a non-commissioned officer has been arrested and charged with massive arms dealing.
The man, a mechanic by profession from a village near Nazareth, was apprehended three weeks ago along with four other suspects: another resident from his village, a man from Kfar Kanna, an Israeli Arab and a Tulkarm resident.

The suspect allegedly solicited other soldiers and NCO's into stealing weapons from caches and bases and sold them to dealers; The transactions surmounted to over hundreds of thousands of shekels.
