Jerusalem police announced on Tuesday that over they past month they uncovered a massive weapons cache hidden inside a vegetable shop in east Jerusalem, with dozens of weapons, ammunition, pipe bombs, Hamas literature, and a quarter of a million shekels.

Two brothers, the central suspects, were indicted over the weekend in the Jerusalem Magistrate Court and will be in detention until the end of proceedings.

National police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said police and the Shin Bet (Israel Security Service) are still investigating whether the weapons cache was designated for carrying out terror attacks or for criminal activity not connected to nationalistic motives.
