Civilians hand over missile launcher, assault rifles, and grenades to IDF

A weapons amnesty launched by the IDF last month has seen civilians deposit an arsenal of arms at IDF bases around the country, an army officer in charge of the collection told The Jerusalem Post on Tuesday.

Civilians responding to the IDF’s call to hand over military and other types of equipment have, over the past three weeks, turned over 160 weapons, and hundreds of thousands of ammunition rounds, according to Col. Meirv Brikman, Commander of the IDF’s Equipment Center, a part of the Technology and Logistics Branch.
