An Attempt To Smuggle Hamas Funds Into Judea And Samaria Thwarted


Recent Shin Bet (ISA) operations have uncovered several cases that underscore the continuing efforts by terrorist organizations to transfer funds and war materiel into Israeli territory by exploiting the humanitarian easements that the State of Israel provides to the PA (Palestinian Authority) population.

Ez Aldin Darabiyeh, 22, a resident of Hebron/Yatir, was recently arrested at the Allenby Crossing while attempting to smuggle approximately JD 10,000 (Worth approximately NIS 51,400) in Hamas funds into Yehuda and Shomron for use in financing terrorist activity.

Shin Bet officials continue working to thwart smuggling funds amid the realization this is a lifeline for terrorists operating within the boundaries of PA autonomous areas.
