During the bust, dozens of boxes of ammunition were found in the suitcases, leading to the arrest of the physician for further investigation. The findings were handed over to the forensic identification laboratories for examination.
Following the conclusion of the investigation, the physician was released to her home under restrictive conditions. And on Sunday, the Magistrate's Court in Rishon LeZion extended her alternative house arrest until next Tuesday. The investigation is ongoing, according to police.
