Hamas Tricked West Bank Residents into Delivering Cash, Weapons to Terrorists

(Maariv-Jerusalem Post) Tal Lev Ram - The Israel Security Agency said Wednesday it had uncovered a scheme in which Hamas terrorists in Gaza use Palestinians from the West Bank, sometimes without their knowledge, to aid Hamas members in the West Bank in carrying out terror attacks. Hamas operatives in Gaza hid their real identities and, posing as businesses, recruited young Palestinians from the West Bank to carry out deliveries. Some transferred funds meant for buying weapons. Others transported packages with weapons or ammunition without knowing their contents. An Israeli defense source said that as a result of this case, "the security system will deny the entry permits of approximately 230 Gazan workers who work in Israel - relatives of those involved in terrorist activities."
