Report: Hamas, Iranian Paymasters Fuel Violent Gaza Protests

Iran and Hamas are fueling violent protests at the Israel-Gaza border by paying Palestinian youth to participate and compensating injured Palestinians and families of those that get killed, according to young Gazans who spoke with Israeli reporter Ohad Chemo.

Hamas pays $100 a month to youth who participate in border protests that have continued unabated since the end of March, Chemo was told.

Hamas’ state patron, Iran, pays $3,000 to each family of a “Shahid” (martyr) who gets killed at the protest. Seriously wounded Palestinians get $500 from Hamas, while less severely injured rioters get $200.

Even bus drivers who transfer the protesters to the Israeli border receive roughly $25 for a one-way trip.

Some Palestinians told Chemo they disagreed with the Hamas strategy.

“If there would be work and income nobody would show up [to the demonstrations],” an older Palestinian said. Many protesters, he added, are members of the Hamas military wing.

“Hamas is the only group which profits from the violent demonstrations,” another Palestinian said.
