IDF Spokesman Rear Adm. Daniel Hagari says the military has uncovered documents and other materials from a tunnel in the Gaza Strip, indicating Hamas’s direct links and coordination with Iran.
“We found official documents of Hamas from 2020, including the details of the funds transferred from Iran to Hamas and [Yahya] Sinwar, between 2014 and 2020. More than 150 million dollars were transferred from Iran to Hamas,” he says.
“This is another example of how Iran exports terror across the Middle East. This is a global problem,” Hagari says.
He says the intelligence information is given to Israel’s allies to be verified.
Hagari says that in the same underground complex, troops located a safe and additional bags containing more than NIS 20 million ($5.5 million) in cash.
He says that troops have found millions more dollars in Hamas sites across the Gaza Strip.
In images released by the IDF, several envelopes of cash are addressed to Sinwar.
