Border Police captured three Arabs on Saturday night near the Tapuach Junction in the Shomron, according to a TPS report.
Following an intelligence lead from the army, Border Police began looking for the three Arab men who were trying to sell the rifle.
At around 10 PM, police spotted and stopped the suspect’s vehicle. Upon inspection, they found the M-16. The rifle had been disassembled, with the parts hidden throughout the vehicle.
The three illegal arms dealers, in their twenties, are from Ramallah and Shechem (Nablus).
