Israeli forces raid Palestinian terror funders

Israeli forces raided 14 Palestinian money-changing operations suspected of funding terror.


In a joint operation Tuesday, the Israel Defense Forces, Israel Police and the Shin Bet confiscated $826,600 that the military said was intended for Hamas and Islamic Jihad in the West Bank.


The money, in shekels, dollars and dinars, was removed from 14 homes and offices in Nablus, Jenin, Tulkarem, Ramallah and Hebron. The military also confiscated weapons and ammunition.
