Sugar-Coated Coverage for the New Year

IDF forces found potassium nitrate disguised as European donated sugar at a checkpoint/IDF photo

It seems that the international press corps aims to keep coverage of the Israeli-Palestinian coverage artificially sweet for the New Year. The IDF Spokesman's office released to journalists on Dec. 29 that several weeks ago,

a truck was caught at one of the crossing points in Judea and Samaria carrying approximately 6.5 tons of Potassium Nitrate. The Potassium Nitrate was disguised in sugar bags, and was intended for use by terrorists in the Gaza Strip.

Potassium Nitrate is a banned substance in the Gaza Strip and the Judea and Samaria region due to its use by terrorists for the manufacturing of explosives and Qassam rockets.

The terror organizations disguised the Potassium Nitrate in sugar bags that were marked as being part of the humanitarian aid provided by the European Union.

The wire services, as well as the major Western media outlets, all ignored the critical story, thereby paving the way for yet more unbalanced reports on the West Bank checkpoints.
