A cemetery worker found the projectile as he was preparing a grave for a funeral that was supposed to take place the next day. When he was digging the ground, his shovel suddenly clunked against something metal, the Jerusalem Post reported.
Without hesitation, the man reported his finding to the local police department, and officers promptly arrived at the scene along with a sapper brigade from Tel Aviv.
The sappers evacuated and neutralized the shell. It appears that the shell had been in the ground since before Israel's establishment.
