The Potassium Nitrate was disguised in bags marked that they were humanitarian sugar aid from the EU, and were intended for Palestinian militants in the Gaza Strip. Potassium Nitrate is a banned substance in the Gaza Strip and the West Bank due to its use by militants in the manufacture of explosives and Kassam rockets

Avrebbe dovuto contenere zucchero per i Palestinesi della Striscia di Gaza, ma conteneva invece nitrato di potassio.

Sacchi come questo, inviati dall’UE come aiuto umanitario, contenevano in totale 6.5 tonnellate di nitrato di potassio, che puo’ essere utilizzato nella produzione di esplosivo e come propellente per razzi.

Il carico di “zucchero”, che viaggiava su un camion palestinese, e’ stato intercettato ad un checkpoint israeliano in Cisgiordania.

6.5 tons of potassium nitrate hidden in sacks marked as sugar from the European Union for needy Palestinians in Gaza. EU declines comment

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 tons 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 traveling in the 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. Israel tightened its military and economic cordon of the Gaza Strip after Islamist Hamas seized the territory in a June war with secular Fatah.
