Pilgrims and their souvenirs...

Ah...the souvenirs they bring back..
Israeli estimates that senior Hamas terrorist operatives, currently stranded on the Egyptian side of the Rafah crossing, are carrying up to tens of millions of dollars in cash that they intend to smuggle into the Gaza Strip, security officials said Monday.

Close to 3,000 Palestinians, including 2,000 who left Gaza two weeks ago to travel to Mecca for the hajj, have been holed up at a temporary camp near El-Arish in Sinai, waiting to return to their homes in the Gaza Strip.

Israel is insisting that the Palestinians, among them at least a dozen senior Hamas operatives, including leader Khalil al-Haya, who traveled to Iran for military training, return to Gaza via the Kerem Shalom crossing and only after undergoing security checks by the IDF. The money, officials said, was obtained during the Hamas operatives' trip abroad and most probably donated to the Hamas by countries such as Iran.
