Israeli officials accused a senior international aid worker of funneling millions of dollars from a charity into the pockets of designated terrorist organization Hamas.
Mohammad El Halabi was charged with funding terrorism after law enforcement said he misappropriated more than seven million dollars per year from the Christian charity World Vision. Estimates say the total adds up to at least $43 million. The funds were supposedly designated for residents of Gaza.
El Halabi reportedly started fake projects, listed Hamas agents as the workers and overcharged the charity, diverting around 60 percent of the project funding to Hamas’ military wing.
