Hamas accused Israel of distributing chewing gum which boosts sex drive in order to "corrupt the young generation," according to an official quoted in an AFP report on Tuesday. Hamas police spokesman Islam Shahwan said, "We have discovered two types of stimulants that were introduced into the Gaza Strip from Israeli border crossings… The first type is presented in the form of chewing gum and the second in the form of drops." The official said that suspects were detained who admitted to helping bring the products into the Strip, and that they were "linked to the Zionist intelligence services." There was no official comment from the IDF on the accusations, though a military source was quoted by AFP as calling them "absurd."
