The military spokesperson said troops found a safe with bills and bags containing more than 20 million shekel in cash addressed clearly. For personal use by senior Hamas members. "This phenomena is repeated. Large amounts of cash kept in underground locations for the personal use of the leaders in Hamas. They invested the money in their personal survival, and that of their families, underground."

The IDF showed video taken inside a tunnel where a large amount of cash was found, documents of the transfer of money from Iran to Hamas as well as pictures of envelopes with money labled "special – Yahya Siwar."
The terror Iran exports and creates in the Middle East is a world wide problem," Hagari said. The intelligence we are uncovering is shared with our partners around the world so that they can verify it. Thanks to the intelligence we are finding underground, we continue to launch operations and to destroy Hamas terror infrastructure."

This was not the first time that large amounts of money were found in Gaza. In December, troops found two suitcases containing five million shekels in the living room of a senior Hamas official in Jabalia. His identity was not revealed but the amount of cash equaled the total funds found in the first month of the war and included American, Jordanian and Iraqi bills as well as Israeli shekels.
