Hamas has smuggled tens of millions of shekels into Palestinian Authority (PA) territory through the Rafah border crossing and through the weapons-smuggling tunnels between Egypt and the Gaza Strip, intelligence sources reported. According to estimates, the money is earmarked for the salaries of senior PA officials, religious figures and some members of the security establishment, Army Radio reported. Palestinian Authority spokesman Ghazi Hamad reacted by saying that the smuggling of the funds is the right of PA officials: "We will search for the money in all places. We will not sit quietly while our children do not have bread and milk."
