A kosher restaurant in Amsterdam has been targeted with a fake bomb.

The suspicious package left outside the HaCarmel restaurant sparked a major security scare but it did not contain explosives, police confirmed.

The Amstelveenseweg, the street where tne restaurant is located, was sealed off and locals urged to leave the area while explosives experts checked out the box, which was lightly sealed with tape and had a wire sticking out.

It had been placed by the main door of the kosher eatery, which was not open at the time.

“This was the fourth time in the past four years,” he told daily Israel Hayom, “but we won’t give in to this behavior, and we will raise our heads. I’m not scared; we aren’t scared; and we will continue operating with tremendous pride.”
