Hamas Gaza chief says group has plenty of cash, won’t take reconstruction funds

Hamas’s leader in the Gaza Strip Yahya Sinwar says in a statement about rebuilding the territory that the terror group “will make the task easier for everyone, and we will make sure that the process is transparent and fair, and let everyone be sure that no penny [of reconstruction funds] will go to Hamas.”

He adds: “We have sufficient financial resources… a large part of which are from Iran, and another part comes from Arab and Muslim donors and free people of the world who stand in solidarity with our people and their rights.”
