JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- An M-16 rifle was reported missing from a base in southern Israel near the security border fence with the besieged Gaza Strip earlier this week.

Hebrew-language news outlets reported that Israeli military police have opened an investigation and have already detained a suspect.

His detention was extended until February 3rd.

An Israeli army spokesperson said, "The IDF views these types of incidents as serious and acts to eradicate the phenomenon. As a result, in 2018 there was a decrease in the number of weapons stolen compared to the previous year."
