A Hebrew scroll of historic value was seized and a group of three people who were preparing to sell it were arrested by the Criminal Affairs Division at the Judicial Police Department of Gorjani, the Interior Ministry said in a statement Wednesday.

The ministry said the 1.93-m long scroll is a historic document of great importance, according to the estimate of an expert from the National Heritage Institute.
