Hamas is reportedly the second-richest terrorist group in the world, after the Islamic State, thanks to taxes on items smuggled through tunnels and contributions from international supporters.

The Hamas terrorist group has enormous financial resources, and a recent social media post shared by Israel’s Embassy in the United States highlighted the divide between the organization’s leaders and the Palestinian people they claim to represent.

The 65-second film states that among terrorist groups, Hamas has an annual turnover of $1 billion, second only to the Islamic State, which is projected to have an annual turnover of two to three times that of other terrorist organizations.

It mentions that because Hamas prioritizes tunnel construction above essential infrastructure like water treatment and wells, 12% of Gaza’s pediatric fatalities are due to tainted water.

It also calculated the estimated net worth of a number of Hamas officials, all of whom reside in Qatar, hundreds of kilometers away from Gaza. Senior leaders Ismail Haniyeh and Khaled Mashal are both estimated to be worth $4 billion, while Abu Marzuk, the deputy chair of the Hamas Political Bureau, is worth $3 billion.
