US offers $10 million for Hamas financial information


The United States is offering up to $10 million for information on five Hamas financiers or anything leading to the disruption of the Palestinian group's financial mechanisms, the State Department said on Friday, Paralel.Az reports.

The reward offering follows four rounds of U.S. sanctions on Hamas after the group's deadly incursion into Israel on Oct. 7, which Israel says killed 1,200 people. Israel's subsequent military retaliation in Gaza has killed 22,600 people, local health officials say, and left much of the enclave in ruins.

The rewards would be provided for information on any source of revenue for Hamas, major donors, financial institutions that facilitate transactions for Hamas, front companies that procure dual-use technology for the group and criminal schemes that benefit Hamas, the State Department said.
