Ahmad Khudri, responsible for transferring money from Iran to terrorist organizations in the Gaza Strip, was killed in an Israeli Air Force (IAF) Strike on Sunday, the IDF announced.
The IDF stated that Khudri, 34, was a money changer who transferred large sums of money from the Islamic Republic of Iran to Hamas and the Islamic Jihad.
Iran provides vast support to Palestinian terror organizations, including Hamas which rules Gaza, as part of its support of a global Islamic terror network.
Islamic Jihad’s Quds Brigades receives some $70 million directly from Iran’s Revolutionary Guard (IRGC). The Quds Brigade was reorganized by Qassem Suleimani, commander of the IRGC’s Quds Force.
Khudri’s company was previously been designated as a terror entity.
“Khudari’s financial activity, which spearheaded Iran’s activity in the Gaza Strip, has contributed significantly to the promotion of terrorist activity and the military buildup of terrorist organizations in the Gaza Strip,” the IDF stated.
“The IDF and the General Security Service will continue to operate to thwart and disrupt Iran’s attempts to promote terrorist activity from the Gaza Strip by funding terrorist organizations such as Hamas, Islamic Jihad and the other terrorist organizations in the Gaza Strip,” it added.
At least 14 terrorists have been killed in IAF strikes in the past 24 hours, while Khudri’s elimination appears to the first targeted assassination.
