EU Aid Truck Carrying Explosives, Say Israel
IT’S WAR: “JERUSALEM (Reuters) – Israel said on Saturday it had recently seized a truck carrying chemicals used to make explosives hidden in bags marked as European Union aid for the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip.
The army said 6.5 tonnes of potassium nitrate were in bags marked as sugar from the European Union for Palestinians in the coastal enclave.
“We are looking into this report,” said an EU official in Israel. “If it is found to be accurate, this is an illegal act that should be condemned.”
