BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) -- Palestinian police on Monday destroyed two grenades left behind by the Israeli army on land belonging to Kadoorie Palestine Technical University in Tulkarem in the northern occupied West Bank.

Palestinian police released a statement saying that police rushed to the area after reports indicated that there were suspicious objects on the land. According to the police, explosives experts examined the objects and concluded that the two grenades were left behind by the Israeli army. 

It remained unclear when the grenades were left in the area. 

The statement added that the explosives unit transferred the grenades to a “safe place and destroyed them properly.”

The police called upon all Palestinians to take the proper precautionary measures when approaching any suspicions objects they might see, not to touch them and to call the police immediately.
