The commander of the Central District - Superintendent Avi Biton said after neutralizing the charge: "Today we thwarted another disaster in the Arab sector and prevented a criminal attack in the heart of a residential neighborhood in Lod, which could have claimed the lives of innocent people."

He further added: "The discovery of the cargo by a special task force that we operate for a while in the cities of Ramla and Lod, to thwart violent crime on the Arab Street, once again proved the professionalism and determination of the police in maintaining the safety of the general public. Our work in today's serious incident will only end when we put our hands on the perpetrators and imprison them behind bars."
