The Jerusalem District Attorney's Office on Monday filed an indictment against Maged Juaba in the Jerusalem District Court for allegedly serving as a money man for the families of imprisoned Hamas terror operatives.

Juaba, 33, of Jerusalem, was formally charged with membership in a terrorist organization and activities relating to funding terrorist purposes.

The allegations in the indictment go as follows: Juaba worked for Bassem Abu Sanina, who Juaba knew to be a Hamas member residing in Gaza and who was freed as part of the Gilad Schalit prisoner exchange.

Abu Sanina was in charge of doling out funds to the families of imprisoned Hamas terror operatives, including those who lived in Israel and in the West Bank, and Juaba was his chief agent and middle man for transferring the funds.

Abu Sanina would give Juaba direct orders about exactly who received funds, when and how much.
