Official Palestine News Agency Wafa, May 21, 2001
Gaza, May 21st Wafa: Head of the emergency in Alshifa Hospital in Gaza,
stated that it seems to be that Israel has started a new genocide against the
Palestinian people by poisoning them, using poisoned candy bags dropped
down from airplanes.
He based his suspicion upon four peculiar cases of poisoning as a result of
touching and smelling candy bags that were dropped from an Israeli airplane at
Beit Lahia north to Gaza City.
He said that when the four examined the bags, they felt bad and vomited, and
were rushed to the hospital.
He added that the initial testing for these bags showed that the candies smell
like coconuts, were poisoned and there is a strong doubt that the candy
contains radioactive materials!.
Finally he warned Palestinian citizens to be alert and aware of any
IDF Spokesperson: The denial of claims by Palestinians regarding the use
of poisoned chocolate
The IDF Spokesperson strongly condemns the ridiculous Palestinian claim
according to which “the IDF is scattering poisoned chocolate from the
air to Palestinian children”.
It is redundant to state that this claim is groundless, and is a further
level in the Palestinian incitement campaign, and a further example of
its lack of credibility.
