Five unexploded mortar shells left over from a past war were found Monday on a beach along Lake Kinneret, also known as the Sea of Galilee, near Kibbutz Ma’agen.
Police officers and sappers from the Israel Police bomb squad were dispatched to the site.
Security personnel immediately closed off the area and began a search to determine whether any other unexploded ordnance remained in the area.
At least four other shells were found.
Israel Police and IDF military personnel worked together to defuse the unexploded shells.
