The Israel Police bomb demolition technicians were called to deal with a dangerous artillery shell found in the yard of a house in the Beis Yisrael neighborhood of Jerusalem
The technicians came to the house following a report to the 100 emergency call center about a shell that was found in the yard of a house. During the initial treatment of the item, the residents and curiosity seekers were removed from the area and the shell was safely removed by the technicians in order to transfer it to a remote site where it would be destroyed.
