Explosive sounds are a stressful thing on a normal day, and certainly during a time of war. The residents of Haifa were surprised to hear explosion sounds from the sea today during Shabbat. Now the source of the explosion is becoming clear: a controlled explosion by the police of a large explosive device in the water that was located near the beach by a lifeguard.

The police reported, "A bomb was found in the water near the Haifa beach. Police officers from the Haifa station and bomb disposal experts are on-site and are asking the public to stay away as much as possible. Haifa station police were called a short while ago to the beach near the Meridian Hotel, following a report of a large bomb in the water, which was discovered by a Haifa municipal lifeguard near the beach. They, along with city inspectors, began to evacuate the area in order to secure the scene."

The police described the operation: "Police bomb disposal experts began working at the scene in cooperation with the IDF and other forces and are asking the public to stay away within a radius of 2 kilometers to handle the item. They are preparing for a controlled detonation. The public is requested to avoid approaching the beach area near the Meridian Hotel on Haganah Street in Haifa and to follow the instructions of the police."
