Israel Police on Monday located weapons, including grenades and magazines, hidden inside what seemed to be a cookie jar in the yard of a Lod school.

Sappers are examining the items and searching the scene in order to ensure that there are no additional weapons nearby.

Police have opened an investigation into the matter.

Earlier on Monday, National Security Minister Itamar Ben-Gvir (Otzma Yehudit) visited Lod and Ramle.

At the start of his visit, Ben-Gvir said, "I came here, first of all, in order to offer support and strength.... We are working hard. With G-d's help in the coming months we will receive a budget - and it is not a secret."

"With that money, there are another 3,225 positions for new police officers and there will be a salary increase in order to ensure that it is worthwhile to join the police."
