Wikileaks: Israel planned to strike Hamas financiallyBEIRUT (Ahlul Bayt News Agency) – A Wikileaks document states that Israeli Anti-Terrorism Bureau chief Danny Arditi had devised a plan to strike Hamas by boosting financial support to the West Bank government headed by Salam Fayyad, the Lebanese newspaper Al-Safir said Friday.

The plan is intended to establish a special Palestinian intelligence monetary unit under US and EU supervision.

The cable quotes Arditi as saying the proposal is aimed at destroying the Hamas group in Gaza financially and giving Fatah time to rebuild needed support.

According to the document, Israel’s national security council has committed to an initiative to provide the Gaza Strip with enough money to buy only basic materials.

Adriti said Israel is discussing downsizing the amount of monies transferred to the Strip monthly, allowing only enough to prevent a collapse in the banking sector.
