Israel’s domestic security service announced that it arrested two individuals on suspicion of raising and laundering money for Hamas. One of the individuals is reported to have set up a shell company to assist in the laundering of funds and to have moved a large amount of money from Turkey to Gaza for Hamas. Turkey was accused of  “turning a blind eye” to the activities of the individuals. Approximately 91,000 euros were found during the operation.

The report did not specify where the funds in Turkey came from (i.e. donors, criminal activities, charities, etc), nor if any of the funds had made it into Gaza for operational purposes.
