According to a recent report by The Jerusalem Post, the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) and Shin bet (Israel Security Agency) exposed links to terror at the largest Palestinian university; Nearly a dozen individuals with ties to Hamas were arrested; Hamas was funding tuition for those involved.
A recent discovery by the IDF and Shin Bet security forces revealed that the most prominent Palestinian University, An-Najah University, was home to several students affiliated with Hamas, the Gaza-based, Iranian-funded terror proxy. Intelligence gathered by the IDF in conjunction with Shin Bet uncovered that nearly a dozen students were involved in terror-related activity throughout the West Bank, or Judea & Samaria.
The students were arrested on campus in Nablus, located in the northern West Bank.
Lieutenant Avichay Adraee of the IDF explained the role of the students on Twitter, saying that they were involved in the “transfer of funds and organizing rallies in support of Hamas, in addition to incitement campaigns under the supervision and direction of senior Hamas officials.”
In the report that initially surfaced with The Jerusalem Post, the Lieutenant further explained that the Islamic Bloc at the university was intentional about working with the terrorist group, and that in return, Hamas was even funding the tuition of the respective students.
