Shabak (Israel Security Agency), the IDF, and Israel Police recently discovered a money trail used to transfer funds from Hamas in Turkey and Gaza to Hamas representatives in Hevron.
The money pipeline began functioning at the beginning of 2016, at the initiative of senior Hamas representative Mahmoud Maher Bader, who found two emissaries - Hamas terrorist in Hevron Mutsav Hashlaman, who was sent to Turkey on a "business trip," and Hevron resident Taha Ottaman.
Bader lives in Hevron and is a member of Hamas' legislative committee.
Mutsav was asked to transfer terror money from Turkey to Hevron, to fund the activities of Hamas' Hevron office, especially the organization's legislative branch. He was also asked to transfer money for Hamas terrorists who were released from prison.
Hashlaman and his brother Yousssari, together with Oumer Keimari, were in contact at the same time with Majjed Jaebba, a Hamas terrorist from Gaza who was released in the 2011 "Shalit deal." Jaebba, too, is from Hevron, and he helped the team transfer money from Turkey. READ MORE
