A five-year-old girl found a box containing a gun hidden in the grass by her kindergarten in Kfar Saba on Wednesday, according to a report by N12.

The kids in the kindergarten were taking part in Good Deeds Day on Wednesday by cleaning up the area surrounding the kindergarten when the girl found a box in the grass and showed it to the teacher. 

When the teacher opened the box and saw the gun, she reportedly called the police immediately and made sure to keep the children away and keep them calm.

When the police arrived, they conducted a search of the area to make sure there were no other weapons hidden there, but they did not find any other weapons.

The gun was taken to a ballistics lab for testing, and the police are going through surveillance footage to try to determine who hid the gun because it was probably put there to be used by one of Kfar Saba's crime gangs.

"The perpetrators are working off the assumption that kindergartens and schools and the surrounding areas are a good place to hide weapons because no one will suspect them," the police told N12.
