Muscat: A number of objects that resembled old projectiles were found in one of the mountainous area of Al Dakhiliyah Governorate far from the populated centres.


The area was used as a military exercise area in Al Dakhiliyah Governorate.


The area was secured and the safe handling of suspicious objects was completed by the explosive ordnance disposal team.


The Royal Oman Police (ROP) cautioned against messing with unknown objects calling on the public to report any such objects to the nearest police station or call the Police Operations Centre.
