Building evacuated after police find explosive device

After detonation devices were placed in properties belonging to multiple famous figures over the past few weeks, police discovered an explosive device in a vacant apartment; an investigation was opened to determine whether there was a link with the recent celebrity-targeting bombing campaign.

An apartment building in Rishon LeZion was evacuated Tuesday after an explosive device and several armaments were found in one of the apartments.



Information uncovered by Tel Aviv Police led them to an apartment belonging to an elderly woman currently residing in a nursing home. The house was unoccupied.

Investigators believe that one of the suspects arrested a few days ago in the case of the recent celebrity-targeting bombing campaign used the apartment in the knowledge that was vacant and unused.
