Police arrested an engineer with ties to the IDF on Friday on suspicions that he approved bomb shelters in the South that do not meet official standards in exchange for cash, Army Radio reported.

Investigations carried out within the Home Front Command - which employed the engineer - along with the military police implicated the man, whose identity was withheld on Friday, with approving permits for contractors building high rises in the southern Mediterranean city of Ashkelon.

Those contractors attempted to save money by cutting corners in the construction of safe houses, in an area where rocket attacks from Gaza occur frequently.

Police also arrested a number of the contractors, releasing them later to house arrest, according to the report.
