Unknown assailants threw a bomb at the Central Police Unit's offices in Ramle Tuesday, leading to an investigation into whether the attack was a retaliation by a crime family.
A security guard found the charge undetonated, apparently because of a malfunction. It was lying near a fence that separates the police headquarters from a neighboring kindergarten.
Sappers found that the assailants had attached an ignition fuse to the device; the fuse apparently went out before it reached the explosives. The sappers then destroyed the device in a controlled blast.
The attack occurred when senior police officials were discussing the police response to the assassination of reputed crime figure Ya'akov Alperon on Monday in Tel Aviv.
