Officials deny reports of Gaza warning leaflets

Gaza – Ma'an – Israeli planes threw thousands of leaflets onto border areas of the Gaza Strip overnight, residents reported, as they woke up to read a paper saying "Await the response tomorrow."

The paper pictured a child carrying a flower, with the Arabic phrase, Intdhar al-rud ghada in script over top.

Witnesses said the warnings were dropped in several places, including east of Khan Younis where Friday violence killed two resistance fighters and two Israeli soldiers. Other pamphlets were reportedly dropped in the Johr Ad-Dik area on the eastern border of the central Strip.

An Israeli military spokesman said he was unfamiliar with any such action in Gaza.

Further denials came from de facto government Ministry of the Interior officials, who said no fliers were dropped overnight.

Spokesman of the ministry Ihab Al-Ghusein said investigations into the issue found the reports to have been false, and spread by "suspicious parties that serve the goals of the occupation.
