"Therefore," he added, "as we warned, sanctions will be imposed on company owners named herein, and they and their families will receive no special privileges and any contact with Israel will be cancelled."

A few weeks ago Maj. Gen. Mordechai was interviewed by the Arab Al-Hura network and said that more than 20 bus company managers were warned not to cooperate with Hamas members.

"We contacted more than 20 bus company managers who Hamas paid to encourage people who don't want to leave their house to take part in these violent demonstrations. We warned them that anyone who uses buses to bring violent demonstrators will have steps taken against him personally and against the company he owns," said the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories.
