Police on Tuesday announced the bust of a major criminal bomb-making ring, run by a father and son in their home in Holon and consisting of at least 18 total suspects.

One of the suspected suppliers of bomb-making materials to the ring was the owner of a Petach Tikvah-based fireworks store; additional suspects in the operation also include the two active IDF soldiers arrested last week for possession of a bomb.

Police said that the ring manufactured dozens of bombs which were sold at an average cost NIS 2,000-4,000.
