A bomb was found ready for use outside a police post in Kfar Yona in the Sharon on Friday morning, Central District police reported.

Police said there is reason to believe that the bomb was placed as part of an attack on the police post, which was also next to a childrens' day care. After the bomb was discovered outside the post around 7am on Friday, police bomb squad units were dispatched to the scene, and evacuated the area while the explosives were neutralized.

Police are keeping mum about the case, and not saying which unit has been tasked with investigating the bombing. Typically, serious crimes, especially ones involving explosives or conspiracies to attack police are handled by the YAMAR central investigative unit.
