The suspects were arrested at the end of July for alleged drug deals with operatives working with Hezbollah in Lebanon. During the course of their interrogation, it was revealed that they had been in contact with George Nimar, a Lebanese drug dealer and Hezbollah operative.

The investigation revealed that Nimar had planned to transfer ammunition and drugs into Israel and that extensive preparatory work had been done along the border between Lebanon and Israel ahead of the planned smuggling operation.

Several of the suspects, all residents of towns in northern Israel, had been in contact with Nimar in the past, and one of them was apprehended with illegal weapons in his possession.
