Israeli Defense Ministry Seizes Chocolate Bound for Gaza

Israeli Defense Minister Benny Gantz announced Monday that Israel had confiscated 23 tons of chocolate bars that were to be imported to the Gaza Strip. Israeli officials said they considered the attempted acquisition “suspicious.”

For years, Israel had forbidden chocolate from even entering the Gaza Strip as a “luxury item.” Recent, some limited imports have been allowed, though Israel tends to curb them whenever they feel like making a move against the Palestinians.

This was different because the 23 tons is such a huge amount, and because the Defense Ministry is claiming that Hamas was planning to fund its military wing with the sales. Ironically, the scarcity in Gaza would increase profitability.
