Israeli-Arab organizations have requested money for projects from Hamas-affiliated groups in the West Bank.

The requests, which total millions of dollars, are for projects such as mosques and clubhouses, according to documents seized by the Israel Defense Forces from Palestinian groups in the West Bank over the last year, Ha’aretz reported Monday.

The documents were seized in Israeli army raids searching for money coming into the area from abroad that is usually used to support terrorism.

Senior Israeli army officers have said that contributions are pouring in to the West Bank by the hundreds of millions of dollars from Islamic communities around the world, Ha’aretz reported.
