Jerusalem District police officers on Wednesday discovered an illegal weapons tunnel beneath a home in one of eastern Jerusalem’s Arab neighborhoods, Arutz-7 reported.
The tunnel was uncovered while executing a search warrant, the report said. Two local residents, 18 and 21, were arrested and taken for questioning.
The Israel Police officers, who were accompanied by Border Police forces, moved aside a carpet in a bedroom and found the small tunnel beneath it that contained M16 rifles and other dangerous items.
