Last week, UN-OCHA reported in their Flash Update #160 for the Gaza war:

On 29 April, the Government Media Office (GMO) reported that a 14-year-old boy was seriously injured, and sustained limb amputations, after opening a booby-trapped can of food found while looking for his belongings in his house that had been shelled by Israeli forces in Khan Younis. The GMO indicated that many people have been recently injured due to the explosion of booby-trapped canned goods, urging the population to exercise maximum care.   
This is an obvious lie and an absurd antisemitic libel. 

The GMO is Hamas, and they already have a seven month track record of making things up. But OCHA's mentioning it allows other media to quote the lie as if the UN is the one accepting the absurd allegations.

The UN is, as it has for months, launders Hamas lies to make them appear legitimate.

After OCHA published the accusation someone had second thoughts. But instead of pointing out that Hamas has a track record of making similarly slanderous accusations that have been proven false afterwards, they merely appended, "Booby traps are not a threat UN specialized agencies have documented in Gaza."

The rumor seems to have started in January. The Times of Gaza tweeted, "Israeli jets dropped explosives disguised as cans of food to lure in displaced people facing starvation in southern Gaza."  Quds News Network added to the lie, saying "Two children, one man, and one woman were killed by the fake cans."

Of course, no names are given.

France24 debunked that video, as have others. The objects shown were fuses meant to explode mines but by themselves they were not dangerous, and they were not "disguised as cans of food." In fact, they are so small that no one would think they contained food. 

So now Hamas has brushed off the lie and published it, and OCHA happily parrots whatever Hamas says, with the weak caveat of quoting the "Government Media Office" which sounds official but is some Hamas guy on Telegram.

Hamas lies every single day, and the media either ignores the lies or repeats them - but almost never points out the pattern of provable lies from that source that we have seen since October 7.
