'A Hamas money laundering ring that funneled hundreds of thousands of dollars from officials in Gaza to Hebron via Turkey has been exposed, the Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) cleared for publication on Thursday.The complex money-laundering enterprise, which began operating last year, was uncovered in a joint operation by the Shin Bet, IDF and Israel Police, which arrested five Hamas members in the West Bank and identified another operative in Turkey and another in the Hamas-run Gaza Strip.The scheme was run by senior Hamas activist Muhammad Mahed Bader from Hebron who was arrested in June. Bader, a member of the Palestinian Legislative Council, recruited two other Hamas activists from Hebron, Mus'ab al-Haslom and Taha Othman, who were sent to Turkey to act as couriers under the guise of business trips.'
