The operation was carried out by the Defense Ministry’s National Bureau for Counter Terror Financing, the Shin Bet and the Customs Authority.
Defense Minister Benny Gantz signed seizure orders on $121,000 worth of merchandise and cash that were transferred via commercial companies by Hamas members in Turkey to Hamas
terrorists in the West Bank.
“We will continue to be relentless on terrorism and track down its infrastructure anywhere it exists in Israel or beyond,” Gantz said following the operation.
In December, Gantz signed an order to seize $4 million that Iran transferred to Hamas in the Gaza Strip.
The money was intended to develop Hamas’s terrorist infrastructure in Gaza, including the production of weapons and paying salaries to terrorists, the Defense Ministry said at the time.
The source of the funds is the Iranian regime, which continues to act against the State of Israel, the ministry added.
