The Times of Israel reports:  Stormy weather washed several dozen explosive fuses up onto beaches in Tel Aviv and Herzliya on Saturday, police said warning the public to exercise caution.

Police told the public to keep away, warning that “any touch could cause an explosion.” Police appealed to the public to report the location of any of the explosive devices that they found.  Large numbers of police sappers were working to locate the undetonated fuses, and several dozen had already been located by Saturday morning, police said.

It wasn’t immediately clear how they were released or from where. Police said that they had been spotted from the Cliff Beach in Herzliya to Mandarin Hotel Beach in Tel Aviv.
