The funding for the attack on Israel has been questionable in the Isaral-Plaestine war, and the answer could lie in cryptocurrency. In the meantime, the Special Cell of Delhi Police is investigating a cryptocurrency case in which approximately ₹4 crore was stolen from a West Delhi businessman’s wallet.
Israel’s intelligence agency, Mossad, provided details about a suspect wallet that transfers funds used by terrorist organizations. The cryptocurrency was moved to wallets connected to Al-Qassam Brigades, the military arm of the Palestinian group Hamas. Israel’s National Bureau for Counter-Terror Financing has already taken possession of these wallets.
After the comparison of the wallets by Special Cell’s Intelligence Fusion and Strategic Opos (IFSO), it was discovered that several of them received the stolen Bitcoin and Etherran assets from Delhi. The cyber-terrorism wings of Hamas operated these wallets.
According to the technical analysis, one of the wallets belonged to Naseer Ibrahim Abdulla in Gaza, while other wallets were linked to Hamas operatives like Ahmed QH Safi in Ramallah, Palestine, and Ahmed Marzooq in Giza. The stolen cryptocurrency was routed through several private wallets before it was discovered in the suspected wallets.
The Israeli Police’s cyber unit recently froze cryptocurrency accounts with the help of Binance, used by Hamas for fundraising. Israeli police urged Binance to send the confiscated money to the national treasury.
