About the Course

Our 30 page Hamas financing report looks at all the ways that Hamas finances its activities. This includes an in-depth look at historic and current revenue sources, how the group procures weapons and devices for terrorist attacks, the movement mechanisms used by the group (including a section on cryptocurrency), and a detailed analysis of Hamas’s management and storage activities. We also created a visual of Hamas’s financial network to facilitate understanding of the global reach of the group. Finally, we explore how Hamas hides the source, destination, and use of funds. 

Part of our value-added in this report is our ability to identify intelligence gaps: what kind of intelligence and information the international community needs in order to detect and disrupt Hamas financing. 

We also take a critical look at some mistakes we’ve seen in open-source reporting on the topic. We cast a critical eye on all reporting, making this the most reliable and comprehensive report you’ll find anywhere. 

The final section looks at a variety of different options for disrupting Hamas financing, and outlines a strategy for tackling the group with the aim of making sure that they’re never able to orchestrate an attack like October 7th again.
