An explosion at an illegal Israeli Fireworks (munition) factory turned out deadly on Tuesday, killing several people after the authorities found out, the factory was operating without a ‘business license’ or a fire department permit.
With the extreme Israeli security measures, this story is hard to believe for the audience. An illegal bomb making factory in central Israel needs some serious security consideration at this point in time.
Though the cause of the blasts is not yet known, the manager has been detained of questioning by police. Twenty-on teams of fire fighters were deployed to the scene as a result.
The factory was located near Tel Mond, in the Lev Hasharon Regional Council’s Moshav Porat area. The Israeli police have prevented residents from entering the area, as a number of houses close the factory also caught fire as a result of the explosions.
