Ynetnews reports:  IDF and Judea and Samaria Police forces uncovered two lathes (pictured) used for the production of weapons and pipe bombs in the village of Abu Dis in East Jerusalem overnight Wednesday. 

In one of the shops, Israeli forces found and seized raw material for the production of explosive devices, ammunition, two old handguns and several grenades. One suspect was arrested.

Over the past few months, police and IDF forces raided two lathe-shops in the Hebron area, considered the center of terror activity in the ongoing wave of violence, where they fund machines used to produce makeshift weapons.

Among these makeshift weapons is the Carl Gustav recoilless rifle, over 20 of which have been seized so far. In addition, Israeli forces seized 18 hunting rifles and a similar number of makeshift handguns.
