Israel phones Gazans with propaganda message in bid to tar Hamas

GAZA CITY (AFP) -- Palestinians in the Gaza Strip said they received phone calls on Friday from the Israeli army accusing Hamas of failing to provide for civilians.

"To the residents of the Gaza Strip, the Israeli army warns you against obeying the orders of the terrorist Hamas or having any contact with it," the recipient of one such pre-recorded message quoted it as saying.

"Know that Hamas is spending millions of dollars on tunnels used for hostile and terrorist acts against the state of Israel," it said. "This money should have gone to infrastructure, education and health projects."

The movement's interior ministry said that dozens of Palestinians received the calls.

The Israeli military did not immediately respond to a request for comment. more
