The objects were taken to be destroyed by northern district police sappers.


Commander of the Northern Police District's Central Unit Chief Superintendent Michael Shipshak said that, "In this operation, we took numerous weapons, before they fell into the hands of criminals, or were used to by local crime families. We've succeeded in preventing injury to people and property."


The commander of the northern district, Major General Rony Atia added, "Our mission is the fight against posession and use of weapons, and our efforts to achieve this take place within the district, as well as outside of it."
