“Actually, What they found was a 40mm gas canister that is launched from a M-16 launcher attachment,” a defense industry source told JewishPress.com.

“It’s like a portable mortar launcher on the bottom of the M-16. The M-203 connects to the bottom of the M16. It’s a gas grenade to be launched from an M-203.”

The search was launched in response to a tip received by Israeli intelligence personnel. A number of suspects were arrested at the site.

Hebron has become the regional headquarters for a number of Arab terrorist organizations, including the Gaza-based Hamas terror group and Islamic Jihad.
