Israel police on Monday urged the public not to take pieces of Katyusha rockets as souvenirs, warning that they pose a security risk.
The unusual police announcement came as Hizbullah
continued to fire dozens of rockets on northern Israel for the sixth straight day, and after at least three Israelis were seen picking up pieces of the rockets to take home as a memento, Israel police sapper Yehuda Peretz said.
He noted that the pieces of rockets contained
electronic wiring and explosive charges which were
liable to hurt the curious souvenir shoppers.
