Hamas Funds Highway 12 Terrorists, IDF Says
Hamas, which distanced itself from last week’s deadly attacks north of Eilat, in fact funds and supports the Popular Resistance Committees (PRC) terrorists who were involved, according to the IDF.
Eight Israelis, including two soldiers, were murdered and more than 30 were wounded in the assault. Hamas claimed it has no connection with the deadly and sophisticated operation.
