Yerushalayim (Ilana Messika/TPS) – In a large-scale operation during the night, Israel Police in cooperation with the Israeli Security Agency (ISA) raided seven homes in East Yerushalayim of families of terrorists who received money, support, and funding from the terror organization Hamas. A total of 14 arrests were made as part of these raids.
The raided homes are located in the villages and neighborhoods of Jabel Mukaber, Ras al-Amud, At-Tur and the Shuafat refugee camp.
The raids included the house of the family of Abu Jamil Jasan Ben Mohammed, who took part in the shooting and stabbing attack at the Har Nof shul in November 2014, and the house of the family of Ramadan and Fahmi Mashara, who is currently in jail for abetting an attack in Gilo, and for killing 19 Israelis in 2002.
Notably, one of the houses raided was the home of the family of Hassan Nabi, one of the terrorists responsible for the 1994 kidnapping and murder of IDF soldier Nachshon Wachsman.
The security forces seized cash, Israeli and foreign currencies, altogether amounting to NIS 200,000. They also took checks, two vehicles, a truck, and jewelry.
“The Israel Police will not allow Hamas to support financially, or otherwise, the families of terrorists who committed murderous terrorist attacks. […] The long arm of the police will reach anyone who funds terrorism, expresses support and encouragement of terrorist activities, their property will be confiscated, and they will be prosecuted,” A police spokesman stated.
