Decades Old Arms Cache Discovered at a School Construction Site

Construction workers preparing to build a new classroom at a school in northern Israel discovered a large underground weapons cache on Monday that included 50 decades-old guns and grenades described as having survived  in pristine condition.

The weapons found on Kibbutz Mesilot were among those hidden by fighters of the Haganah, the Jewish community’s defense force when the area was under British rule before the 1948 War of Independence.

Beit She’an Police Chief Superintendent Amos Shimoni told Ynet that the weapons were preserved so well in a large box that some appeared to be in practically new condition.

  1. Now that is what happens in a land with almost no rainfall. Think what burying weapons in the rural south would do. In the last 40 years I have never seen a single supply ammunition or weapons cash come out of the ground east of the Mississippi that didn't have serious water damage. 90+% of all the ammo and food was so damaged as to be worthless.---Ray

  2. I sure wish I knew how to preserve stuff underground in the S/E but my fears are
    confirmed by the previous Mr. Anonymous. I live in a house on top of a sand hill
    and the soil is extremely dry beneath my house so I suspect a cache would survive
    buried there as long as the house was intact. After that, I doubt it.

    1. Those special containers won't do it?


  3. If I found em there wouldn't be a story.I'd be shopping for a new gun safe:)

  4. Why can't I ever find something like that?
