Dutch police give all clear after no explosives found at Israeli envoy’s residence

THE HAGUE, Netherlands — Dutch police say early Wednesday they found no explosives after a probe at the residence of the Israeli ambassador in The Hague, which comes amid tightened security in the city.

The area was cordoned off late Tuesday, with half a dozen ambulances, fire engines, and police vehicles visible, according to an AFP reporter on the scene.

But police later write on X, formerly Twitter, that after an investigation by the military bomb squad, “it turns out not to have been an explosive.”

“The area has been cleared,” say police.

Authorities in The Hague had already imposed emergency security measures around the Israeli embassy in response to an unspecified threat.

The emergency measures allowed police to search people in the area, make additional checks and deny access if necessary.
