 President Mahmoud Abbas's Minister of Religious Affairs Mahmoud Al-Habbash said Hamas is stealing aid money from Gaza, according to a Channel 13 report on Monday. 

"They steal the aid and then sell most of it, and they lie that and say they are distributing the money to poor families in order to deceive and get more donations - so they can steal them too," he wrote on his Facebook page.
