Israel has been warned that terrorist groups may seek to use liquid fentanyl against citizens in efforts to cause widespread deaths among civilians.
Magen David Adom, Israel's largest humanitarian organization, sent an alert warning of the potential threat.

"Though the MDA alert did not mention rockets specifically, a source told Breitbart News that a few rockets with chemical capabilities had been found in Gaza," Breitbart News reported.
"The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) also said in a statement Sunday that some Hamas weapons recovered in the area of Beit Hanoun had been 'brought to Israel for further examination,' without elaboration," it added.

The news comes as the IDF released evidence of Hamas using a hospital as a terror base.
"Evidence showing how Hamas terrorists used Gaza's Rantisi Hospital for Children as a terror base was revealed by the Israeli army on Monday," Newsmax reported.
"Hamas hides in hospitals. Today, we will expose this to the world," IDF Spokesman Brig.-Gen. Daniel Hagari said as he presented the evidence at a press conference, according to the outlet.
Other reports have noted Hamas using children and civilians as human shields, repeatedly showing the violence from the group toward civilians.
The latest threat concerning fentanyl is one of many concerns that remain for those seeking peace in Gaza and beyond.
While many Hamas strongholds have been damaged or destroyed, rockets continue to be fired toward Israel with the threat of violence ongoing in the area.
