Defense Minister Benny Gantz has okayed the seizure of 23 tons of chocolate, the sale of which was intended to help fund the Gaza-ruling Hamas terror groups, his office says in a statement.

According to the statement, Hamas uses funds from the sale of basic goods such as chocolat to fund operations, including those of its military wing.

“Israel will continue to act to prevent the strengthening of Hamas, which is building a military force instead of caring for the residents of the Strip who are collapsing under the economic burden. We will continue to pursue terror funds,” Gantz says.
