IDF: Hamas Stole Millions of Shekels from Gaza Banks

IDF Arabic spokesman Lt.-Col. Avichay Adraee revealed on Wednesday, May 29, a Hamas document, which shows how the organization planned to rob bank safes in Gaza. A month later, hundreds of millions of shekels were allegedly stolen from bank branches in the Gaza Strip by Hamas.

“We are revealing a document written by a senior Hamas official, which shows that following Hamas’s financial hardships during the war, the organization’s terrorists broke into Bank of Palestine branches in Gaza and stole over NIS 400 million,” Adraee said in a video posted on his X account.

“In early February, Hamas thugs threatened the Bank of Palestine staff in the Rimal neighborhood of Gaza City not to take the cash out of the bank’s safes, and on April 16, they stole hundreds of millions of shekels from the branch. Two days later, they broke into another branch in Gaza City and stole tens of millions of shekels. On April 19, the terrorists committed another robbery at the main branch of the bank in Gaza City, stealing hundreds of millions of shekels,” Adraee continued.

“What will the residents of Gaza say, who are poorer day by day because of the bloody adventures of these child-killing tyrants? Hamas steals from the citizens of the Gaza Strip for the sake of its survival without any shame, and finances its terrorist activities on the backs and pockets of the residents of the Gaza Strip,” the IDF spokesman concluded.

The IDF also recently revealed that it has located and destroyed a 1.5-kilometer long tunnel route in eastern Rafah containing dozens of antitank missiles and weapons. (JPost / VFI News)
