The sponges, tubes and millstones of the spiral tubes are a sight that haunts Jerusalem and the surrounding areas.
The tubes are commonly used in the production of toothpaste and other cosmetics, and the tubes are used in various other industries as well.
But this week, the Israeli Ministry of Culture announced it had found the millstones in a cemetery, in the Old City of Jerusalem.
The millstones were used to manufacture soap, detergent, toothpaste, shampoo and other products.
According to a statement released by the ministry, they were discovered in the cemetery in the Temple Mount, the third cemetery in Israel to be discovered with the millstone in a few years.
The ministry said it is now in the process of contacting the cemetery owners, the authorities responsible for the cemetery and the Ministry of Tourism to locate the mill stones.
“We will keep you updated,” the ministry said in a statement.
The discovery of the mill stone in the tomb of Sheikh Fadi, the grandfather of the Muslim Prophet Mohammed, sparked the outrage of the Islamic State (IS) group, which has also been using the mill-stone to produce and sell its products.
In 2014, IS claimed responsibility for a similar attack in the northern town of Nablus, killing four civilians and wounding dozens of others.
The millstones are used to produce soap, soapwashes, detergents, shampoo, toothpastes, and other types of cosmetics.
The Israeli Ministry says they are also used in other industries.
