Journalist Tzvi Yehezkeli reported on the luxurious lifestyle of senior Hamas officials on Israel’s Channel 13, finding that the industry of ‘wretchedness’ actually brings over $10 billion into Gaza. Hamas leadership built their wealth via mall chains, real estate and international donations.

Yehezkeli interviewed radio broadcaster and political commentator Sami Obeid who called these senior officials “thieves.”

“For the simple, embittered citizen, there’s no food, no money, no life, no work, nothing, nothing nothing. There’s nothing. Because of Hamas,” Obeid told the reporter.

Instead of international donations going to those in need in Gaza, Yehezkeli claims that Hamas leadership pockets it for themselves. Pictures of their million-dollar homes are completely intact and far from the destruction of the rest of the Gaza Strip.

Central Intelligence Agency Director William Burns visited Israel Wednesday in an effort to rally regional support amidst attacks from Iran. Burns discussed possibilities for regional cooperation with Israel Prime Minister Naftali Bennett.

Late July, drones struck an Israeli tanker off the coast of Oman. As a result, two crew members died. Since then, the United States blamed Tehran for the attack. Iranian officials deny their involvement.

At the time, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said the White House was noticing a disturbing pattern. “We feel it follows a pattern of attacks and other belligerent behavior,” Psaki said. “And these actions also threaten freedom of navigation through crucial waterways — something that is posing a risk to a range of countries around the world.”
 
Therefore, the press secretary suggested that countries get involved. “You know, I would also note that we know our British partners have called for action, called for steps in a coordinated way from international bodies, including the United Nations, which we would certainly support,” Psaki said. Now, Burns’ visit symbolizes the United State following through on the White House’s comments.

According to a statement from Burns’ office, he met with Bennett after meeting with the head of Israel’s Mossad intelligency agency David Barnea. Burns met the Israeli leader in Tel-Aviv. “They discussed the situation in the Middle East, with emphasis on Iran, and possibilities for expanding and deepening regional cooperation,” the statement read.

Next, Burns will meet with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.
