A bomb-making ring in Holon packed nails and screws into explosives to maximize damage, a tactic used by suicide bombers, Israel Radio reported Wednesday.

Police revealed that a father and son have been running the highly sophisticated bomb ring, that supplied dozens of explosives to organized crime figures in the country’s Center over the past year.

The case became public on Tuesday when police sappers, detectives and SWAT officers carried out a series of raids in Holon, Petah Tikva and Yavne, during which they arrested 19 suspects.
