But It Was for Peaceful Purposes...

Nice to see that humanitarian aid going to good use.

Israel says finds explosive chemicals in EU aid bags
Israel said on Saturday it had recently seized a truck carrying chemicals used to make explosives hidden in bags marked as EU 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.

EU officials in Jerusalem had no immediate comment.

The cargo in a Palestinian truck was travelling in the occupied West Bank and seized several weeks ago at an Israeli checkpoint, the army said.

The EU is the largest provider of humanitarian assistance to Gaza.
Surely the EU will help cover the cost of the 6.5 tons of potassium nitrate and will reimburse Hamas.

For the starving children, of course.
