There is valuable information that the U.S. government is willing to pay a hefty sum for. The U.S. is eager to obtain information on one of the world's most feared militant groups, Hamas. This Palestinian organization was behind the shocking attack against Israel on October 7, which escalated into an Israeli invasion of Gaza. Hamas has been designated a terrorist organization by the U.S. and EU for several years.

The U.S. is now offering up to $10 million, for information about Hamas's financing. This was reported by Reuters.

The offer follows four rounds of U.S. sanctions against Hamas. The U.S. has specifically identified five individuals they want information about, all described as global terrorists:

  • Abdelbasit Hamza Elhassan Khair

  • Amer Kamal Sharif Alshawa

  • Ahmed Sadu Jahleb

  • Walid Mohammed Mustafa Jadallah

  • Muhammad Ahmad 'Abd Al-Dayim Nasrallah

These individuals are believed to be in various countries in the Middle East and Africa.

The first financier mentioned has been involved in handling many of Hamas's investment portfolio companies and was involved in transferring nearly $20 million, according to the U.S. Department of State. He is linked to Sudan's President Omar Bahsir and Islamist groups undermining stability in Sudan.

Three of the Hamas agents are presumed to be in Turkey. One of them has transferred tens of millions to Hamas, including the group's military wing, the U.S. department reports.

The $10 million reward would be provided for any information on how Hamas is financed, whether it involves major players, financial institutions facilitating transactions, or front companies that benefit Hamas through criminal systems.
