World Vision: Israeli Charges Based on 'huge Gap' in Numbers

Monday, 08 August 2016 04:47 AM

JERUSALEM (AP) — The international charity World Vision says Israel has accused the charity's Gaza Strip director of funneling what appears to be an impossible sum of money to Hamas.

Israel's Shin Bet security agency says Mohammed el-Halabi confessed to siphoning about $7.2 million a year to Hamas over five years. The agency says this is roughly 60 percent of World Vision's total Gaza budget.

World Vision Germany spokeswoman Silvia Holten said on Monday the charity's budget in Gaza in the last decade totaled $22.5 million. She says World Vision has stopped its Gaza operations amid investigations. Germany and Australia have suspended donations to World Vision in Gaza.

Holten says "there is a huge gap in these numbers the Israeli government is telling and what we know."

Israel indicted el-Halabi last Thursday.
