Israel closes Hamas-affiliated offices in West Bank

The IDF says it has forced the closure in a West Bank city of offices of a charity affiliated with Hamas. The army spokesman says that troops early Wednesday shut down financial offices of the "Islamic Charity Movement." Israel believes the group works with the Hamas group to recruit operatives and raise money for terrorist activities. Israel had closed some Hebron offices of the Islamist movement earlier this year. That closure came after two Hamas members from the city carried out a suicide bombing that killed one Israeli.
