JNS.org – Israeli security forces raided overnight Sunday the east Jerusalem homes of seven terrorists whose families are believed to be on the Hamas payroll.

Fourteen people were arrested and more than NIS 200,000 shekels ($53,000) in cash was seized, along with jewelry and several vehicles.

Police said the raids, in the Jabel Mukaber, Ras al-Amud, A-Tur and Shuafat neighborhoods, followed a long intelligence-gathering operation revealing that the suspects and their families were receiving funds from Hamas, primarily because their relatives had carried out terrorist attacks.

“The Israel Police will not allow the families of terrorists to receive any financial support from terrorist groups,” officials said in a statement.
