Hamas: Israel booby-trapping cars imported to Gaza

From Ma'an:

The Hamas-led government in Gaza has warned officials and leaders of Palestinian factions to avoid buying the new cars that have been entering the Strip over the month, according to media reports late Monday.

"A note has been circulated to all concerned parties, warning them of the new cars the Israeli occupation has allowed in Gaza before they undergo special tests by security services," a Gaza security source said according to one report.

Gaza Interior Ministry spokesman Ihab Al-Ghussein confirmed the report, saying " ... it is still a possibility that the occupation fixes tracking devices to the cars or even booby-traps them."
So let's wait for ordinary Gazans to buy them and see if they get blown up!

By the way, it isn't cars that are booby trapped. It's coriander.
