Two Hamas Offices in Jerusalem Shut Down

Border police closed two offices in Jerusalem that were identified with Hamas. The offices, in the City of David (Silwan) neighborhood ostensibly raised funds for charities, and housed a soccer team's offices. The offices were closed for at least 30 days, accused of housing Hamas activities.

In the past year, 10 offices belonging to terror organizations – mostly Hamas - have been closed. Border police officials said that the closures were part of routine enforcement of Israeli law in Jerusalem.
