Background: An Israeli police superintendent told reporters on Thursday (6 January), that the Israeli police had the current wave of bomb parcels "under control". Superintendent Ben Yishai made the statement in Tel Aviv police headquarters.
In the past few days, there have been a number of bombs disguised in gaily-covered parcels sent to individuals and organisations in Israel. On Monday (3 January) a police bomb disposal expert was seriously injured when dismantling a parcel bomb.
Most are sent from Austria, apparently by Arab guerrilla organisations in Europe.
